Vladimir Nabokov, Lolita (via kinbote)
She knows that the reason you came to her is some girls you were into all left you and then she was just there. If she was the one who would become special for you, you must have been interested in her at least much more than anyone else already when you met her at the first time. It’s you who didn’t even notice her existence for a long time, while she had seen you disappear and reappear when you were terribly crazy about a girl and crashed by her. She had seen you from the beginning, thinking “I like music as much as you do”. If someone is special for you, you are supposed to notice at first glance even in another 200 audiences. Right?
I will write a little further for you, man, if you want. You don’t understand why I always have to think if you want. It’s because you are so young and it scares me if it would hurt me, and at the same time, it makes me feel I can’t bother you because you are so young.
My body was breaking down by falling deep. Is it saying “stop thinking as more than a friend, it’s wrong” or “stop thinking too much, it’s no problem”?
Marriage? Oh that. No, that never happened.
I got the strangest email from my ex wife 2 days ago. I’ve been silently processing it, not really knowing what to think. After being married for 4 years, divorced for 1 year, she is going all Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on me — only instead of denying the holocaust, she is denying that the marriage ever happened. In a word, she asked for an annulment. I linked to the wikipedia page, because I didn’t even know what it was.
When I asked her why, she said it was none of my business.
To clarify, I am not writing this as an ex-wife bashing thing. I’m too passive-aggressive-Buddhist-wannabe for that! No, I am sharing this so that you think long and hard before you say, “I Do.” Just think about it, please.
50 years later, the institution of marriage may possibly be completely obsolete. I personally hope so, lest people keep dancing on the stage for a mockery related to marriage forever. It degrades love to a social status.
