“One of the things Ford Prefect had always found hardest to understand  about humans was their habit of continually stating and repeating the  very very obvious, as in It’s a nice day, or You’re very tall, or Oh dear you seem to have fallen down a thirty-foot well, are you alright? At first Ford had formed a theory to account for this strange  behaviour. If human beings don’t keep exercising their lips, he thought,  their mouths probably seize up. After a few months’ consideration and  observation he abandoned this theory in favour of a new one. If they don’t keep on exercising their lips, he thought, their brains start  working. After a while he abandoned this one as well as being  obstructively cynical.”

And I have been humbled once again. 

Here I stand, alone. Alive. All on my lonesome. 

Ditched. Left alone. Betrayed. 

Cheated. Warned. 

And the walls have now been repaired. 

Never shall I fall in love again. 

Since I am the one who seems to be falling in the process. 

The other side just waits. 

Boo to you all for losing me. I feel sorry for you. 

In the future, when you look back on your past and think of me, you will realize what you have lost. 

I am a good woman, a good one indeed. 

You threw me away, and now I shall return the favour. 

You didn’t deserve me and I didn’t deserve to be treated the way I was treated. 

And now I walk in the rain, hoping Mother Nature’s tears can camouflage mine.
