I'm sure that every who knows me would shake their head in some assholish combination of pity and disappointment over what I did late Friday night.
But, Oh well.
How could I refuse?
Answer: I couldn't fucking refuse.
And it's okay. It really is. I feel better now, because I got an explanation of sorts, for the way I've been treated lately. One that I can actually believe, if you can believe that. I needed that explanation even more than I thought. I needed it more than I needed to breathe.
And it's also okay because I got to be useful again, albeit for just one night.
Not that kind of night, you perverts!
And all that stuff about getting to be a part of her life again, and getting to be a part of the kid's life again?
Well, I knew it was bullshit all along, as it was being said, and she would have known it too, had she been sober.
I don't pity myself over what I did, and I'm not disappointed in myself. And I'm neither disappointed nor surprised over how it turned out. And my opinion is the only one that really matters in this case, so the rest of you can go tsk tsk over someone else.
