The How I Learned Series features writers, storytellers, comedians, and other raconteurs holding forth on a different theme. It all happens every last Wednesday of the month, and sometimes more than that, which basically means you will have the best night of your life on those nights, repeatedly.



Bringin' On The Heartbreak

Monday, July 20th, 2009

Over the last couple of weeks I've spent a lot of time gearing up for this Wednesday's How I Learned We Were Breaking Up. How? Well, thank you for asking. I've been watching a lot of heartbreaking music videos on the YouTubes. I've made different breakup mixes to suit the various stages of grief. I've re-read love letters from old boyfriends, torn up their photos (but then glued them back together), and I've been weeping a lot. Angry tears, mostly. I've also overfed the cat, neglected to shower, and I've eaten a pint of ice cream in one sitting on several occasions while asking myself questions like, "Why can't you just fucking let it go?" or "What would Alanis do?"

Anyway, this is just how I'm preparing myself. I'm kind of a method-host. You probably have your own technique.

Question: What's the worst/best/weirdest way someone has broken up with you or you've broken up with someone? (That someone could be your therapist, your BFF, a relative, etc....) I want to know! Email me at howilearned at gmail dot com.

See you Wednesday!
xoxo Blaise
