Unnecessarily Ruined

A conversation with my sister yesterday got me thinking about just how many things can be ruined by a breakup, besides the relationship of course.  Whether we realize it or not, certain things will always bring back memories of an ex, and for a while it’s only natural to avoid those things.  For me it’s a fairly simply, although quite funny, list.

  1. The term “woman”- I had an ex who used to refer to me as woman all the time, don’t even mutter that word around me anymore, unless you enjoy death stares.
  2. Applebees- I have not set foot in one since June 2009 when I was broken up with prior to a dinner there.  Although, I’m not too sad about that one as Applebees kinda sucks.
  3. Tom Petty- I know right?  Well an ex and I went to a Tom Petty concert together once, and it was awesome and amazing and the best concert ever, and for the longest time after we broke up I couldn’t stand to listen to my greatest hits album.  The first strums of Free Fallin was enough to send me into an emotional breakdown and running to the vodka in the freezer.
  4. LOST and Dexter- These were really hard for me to get over as both were in the middle of a season when we broke up, but they were two shows we watched together EVERY WEEK.  Wednesday and Sunday date nights in front of the TV with our respective alcoholic drinks of choice.  In the very beginning, every time something crazy happened I would pick up the phone to text him about it, and have to physically force myself to stop.  That sucked.

Eventually I got over all these things, I can sing along to all my favorite songs again, and I powered through all the following seasons of LOST and Dexter, but at first they made me a train wreck.  Breaking up sucks, but I think having some of your favorite things ruined by said breakup sucks even more.

What have breakups ruined for you? Anything funny/weird?

I’m still reeling from last night’s season finale of Grey’s.  I’m furious and annoyed all at the same time, how dare they end the season like that.  The worst.
