Too Close for Comfort - McFly
Too Close For Comfort
Peter has the kids till the end of the week, since they're on their Christmas break right now, so I was left to my own devices last night. I ended up channel surfing during dinner and landed on the Hallmark Channel, and a charming little romantic comedy titled "The Holiday", with Cameron Diaz, Kate Winslet, Jude Law and Jack Black. It was light and fluffy and fun and poignant and seemed to be just what I needed - until....
Until Cameron Diaz tells Jude Law her life story, and mentions that she was fifteen when her parents split up, and it hit her really, really hard because she didn't see it coming. They were all so happy, or so she believed. When they sat her down to tell her, she'd thought they were joking until she saw her Dad's suitcase packed and standing in the corner.
That one hit me right in the solar plexus, and I was transported back to the night we told Anna we were divorcing, and the total confusion and disbelief on her face. Her first words were "This is a joke, right?" I still remember the weeks afterward as she tried to make sense of the situation. "Aren't we happy? I don't understand! You love him, I know you do." I suddenly felt like I was watching a grown-up Anna, who was still trying to make sense out of it all, all those years later.
Stupid, I know. Anna's life isn't scripted like a movie, and really, she's made a lot of sense out of the situation already. She even told me that she hopes I meet somebody soon, because I deserve a great guy. She loves her Dad, but she just doesn't see us together anymore. "You guys are so different," she says now. She's right. But I still (and will always to some degree) feel like we dropped a bomb on her and her brother because they didn't see it coming. We never fought in front of them - hell, we almost never fought, period.
