breaking up is hard to do

it's kind of like splitting up with that guy, the one you've been with for a long time, the one you were friends with first, the one your friends and your family and even your ex likes, the one that you thought maybe might be in it for the long haul. but when you were honest with yourself, you knew there had been something missing lately; you looked him sometimes when he didn't know and you could tell his heart wasn't really in it anymore, that he kind of wanted to be somewhere else, and you even had that thing where you thought he was cheating on you last year, but you worked things out, and, although it was up and down for a bit, it was really really good for a while.

and then things got really weird. you tried to talk about it, but that just made it weirder. and no matter what you said or did, he was positive he couldn't stay, he just didn't feel like you wanted the same things, even though you're sure that you do. what he didn't quite say, but you're pretty sure he meant, was that you're not good enough anymore.

so right now, he's upstairs packing his stuff, trying to decide where to go.

oh sure, there've been other guys, and there will be more to come. some of those you might already know--there's that green-eyed Dutchman who just got into town, and that French guy with the cheeky grin and more energy than a miniature poodle, and what about that quiet young Spaniard with the twinkle in his eye--and maybe some you haven't met yet.

but right now, you're just confused and disappointed and hurt and sad.

Indecisive Gerrard opts to stay at Liverpool

By Robert Woodward

LONDON (Reuters) - Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard executed a bewildering u-turn on Wednesday, telling the European champions he now wanted to stay at Anfield.

Less than 24 hours ago Gerrard said he had made the toughest decision of his life to leave his first and only club six weeks after lifting the Champions League trophy in Istanbul.

"He wants to stay. He realises how much the club means to him," Liverpool chief excutive Rick Parry told SkySports News. "I couldn't be more delighted."

Parry said that in a series of telephone calls he had apologised to Liverpool-born Gerrard for any misunderstandings about the club's desire to keep their talisman.

"We've cleared all of that and I don't think it will happen again. It hasn't been easy for him but as far as we are concerned it is the right decision."

Parry indicated Gerrard had agreed to sign a new contract which could make him one of English soccer's highest-paid players, earning an estimated 100,000 pounds a week.

yeah, I saw that when I woke up.

just like a guy, right? "I'm leaving, I can't stay..." then, hours later: "how could I leave? I love you."
