Did you watch Glee this week?
My friend, M, invited me over for an adult beverage and Glee-watching and some girl time. We hadn’t hung out in a while and it was good to see her.
When I started sobbing the minute Curt’s dad fell down, I was extra glad that she asked me to come over. Because if I had to watch that episode on my own, I know it would have pushed me over the edge into a true crying fit.
I knew it was inevitable to see a father’s heart attack shown in popular culture, and even though I knew it was coming from the previews the week before, it was still hard to watch.
M grabbed me a tissue and it was nice to have someone else cry with me.
I’m glad it had a somewhat happy ending, but Curt’s song, I Wanna Hold Your Hand, physically hurt my heart. That’s all I want – is to hold my dad’s hand. It’s very hard to realize that I can’t do that now.
