In the University of Texas, San Antonio I found a stone table outdoors with this message scrawled on it:
- “The one you love and the one who loves you are never, ever the same person.”
Now, I was considering writing a serious column regarding the truth and falseness of this statement, and I would have too, had it not been followed by another statement, in different ink:
- “What if you love yourself?”
Then there was:
- “Good f***ing point.”
Needless to say, the idea of writing any sort of serious work concerning this flew out the window.
And it really is a good point.
