Prompt Tuesday - the Mix Tape Edition


Dear John,

We've been dating for two years now, and there's just no easy way to say this. I've met my soulmate. And you? Are not him. Wow, actually, that was pretty easy. And cathartic.

You are a nice guy with many admirable traits, and I have no doubt you will meet a woman who will love and appreciate you for those many admirable traits, and look beyond your trucker chic wardrobe and the volcano bong everpresent on your wagonwheel coffee table and see the *real you*.

In the meantime, I wish you well and hope these songs will help you through this difficult breakup.

xoxo -- as a friend only --
Shana, 1986

Alone again, naturally

Please don't go
Let's just kiss and say goodbye
Breaking up is hard to do
I will survive

There goes my baby
All out of love
Lonely is the night
Baby come back

Sad Eyes
Love Stinks

I ain't missing you at all


This is my first foray into the land of Prompt Tuesday. And I'm a week late. Story of my life, a day late and a dollar short. John is probably better off this way. Thanks, San Diego Momma, for hosting and letting me play : )

The really sad thing? I love every single one of those freaking songs.

Air Supply still rocks my world and Sad Eyes is the best sing-along song ever.
