Would you rather go on a date with your last bad date again or get hot sauce in a not hot place?
Last night I was all fired up. This is not uncommon. I have a fiery disposition.
Sometimes when I’m feeling frustrated or angry or I’m just trying to work through some issues I find myself talking to people who aren’t there in the mirror.
No, I don’t mean imaginary people.
I mean real people that I have met in real life who just happen to not be present while I am having the conversation.
I suppose it is not a conversation since they have no opportunity to rebuttal.
I guess you’d have to call it a monologue directed at a specific individual who will never hear it. Whatever. I know for a fact that I am not the only one who has these sorts of mirror monologues.
Anyway, last night I was having this anger-filled mirror monologue as I was getting ready for bed. In between washing my face and brushing my teeth etc. I was yelling all sorts of things at this dude.
These were not nice things.
There was a lot of
“sometimes I wish that I tried to be less understanding of other people’s motivations and instead just told them to fuck off without hearing their point of view.”
Things like that.
I called him an asshole.
I was taking out my contacts around the same time I was calling him an asshole. I sort of forgot that right before I decided to go to bed I had eaten a cheese quesadilla covered in hot sauce.
You can imagine what happened next.
Oh yes. The residual hot sauce made a lasting impression on my eyeball. And by lasting I mean it burnt like a motherfucker for about 10 to 15 seconds in which I immediately began apologizing to the man in the mirror who wasn’t really there.
I was like, “FINE, YOU’RE NOT AN ASSHOLE!”
Then the hot sauce eye burning went away.
And I was like, okay, maybe you’re a little bit of an asshole but would I go through that entire dating experience again versus having hot sauce go in my eyeball?
Yes. I would even rather go on a date with him again knowing fully the exact kind of asshole he is than have hot sauce go anywhere near my eye.
That’s how much it hurts to have hot sauce in the eyeball.
Now, I have decided that this is going to be the litmus test for all of my past, present, and future relationships.
Does this hurt more than hot sauce in the eye?
If yes, never speak to person again.
If no, then don’t yell at them in the mirror when they cannot reply back. Instead, say it to their face with hot sauce in hand and if they say something mean to you throw the hot sauce in their eye!
Or don’t. You do you. Fight dirty, clean, or hot, it’s up to you.
What would you choose: hot sauce in the eye or another date with your last bad relationship?
