Episode 30 final episode of season 2, Ex and the City has Carrie dealing with the fact that Mr. Big is now dating Natasha, and Miranda hiding from Steve.
I have been sitting here for the last half hour trying to both tie this into my own life without rehashing what I've done in the past on the old blog, and just in general trying to blog as I keep getting interrupted.
The question of the week Carrie asks is " Can you be friends with an EX?"
I can't. I've had enough lovers/boyfriends over the years that I am so glad are out of my life. Two big loves that I am glad are out of my life, but I am still holding on for that ONE.
But yes, I am having the Miranda view on this "We didn't work out, you need to not exist." when it comes to exes.
This episode also has Charlotte returning to a hobby that she loved as a child, horse back riding. I have always been terrified of horses so, I have never seen the enchantment that it holds for others. But the idea of returning to a past hobby I understand. We all have a fear that we need to report back to and recover from. Some exes are larger then life (like Mr. Big and Steve) where as others are not so much (the horse issue) but we still need our friends to get us through.
If "X" equals the unknown, can you sit still long enough to let that unknown factor- factor into your new life, or will it haunt you forever?
