Pulling away

You know, I gotta agree with Rümmi and say that sometimes, it's better to just not set yourself up for the crushing disappointment that comes with expecting things from people who will never deliver. Even if it's dramatic to call it "crushing" when it happens, it usually is just working its way to crushing and would have arrived there if it hadn't been circumvented by the act of pulling away. The extreme high is addictive, but the inevitable low is just plain shitty. I have said in the past that I would take the low just to get the high. This is a really stupid philosophy. I, however, am incapable of being logical about anything and therefore knowingly subject myself to the letdown because the high points are so much fun. I should really try this from now on. It would just save me time:

But he was President... and invented a lot of crap. I think he expected SOMETHING.
