dumb fucking luck

October 26, 2009

in  a city of 8 million people, one wouldn’t expect to bump into an ex boyfriend, lover, or friend, right?  WRONG.  this is the smallest fucking city you can imagine.

i had a very short-lived fling with a musician boy who i bumped into while going down into the subway on the lower east side.  awkward?  i think so.  then tonite i went to an open mic nite (very first one in NYC, might i add) and as i approached the sandwich board outside noticed the name of a band that ANOTHER boy i briefly dated is in.  WTF?  Do i have a flag on me saying “hey, NYC, fuck me over today please!?!”  holy shit.

this city is so small…it’s kind of ridiculous.

    Dahlia…oh Dahlia…this is NYC calling you…please enter every address book you’ve ever had so we can make sure to call up all your old boyfriends and get them to move to NYC…and then get them to show up where you like to show up…you know, it is extremely rare that musicians, filmmakers, writers, actors, creative people and just your average person-with-a-big-dream comes to NYC to get in on the most exciting city in the U.S.

    …yup…vewwy vewwy vewwy small town…had lived in NYC about a week, was siting in a coffee-shop on 8th Street when a guy I adored (not an ex, tho) from college strolled by…I ran out of the coffee shop to connect with him…was so excited!!! And it just kept on coming!

    love 2 u

      i know…it’s kind of incredible. it’s like we don’t have a choice to face our demons because they’re all over the city.
