...it's the ability to put on a plastic face, be fake and pretend I am something I am not. I've tried. It only worked for one hour.
I know someone that has done it her whole life.
A good freind of mine recently got back together with his ex-girlfriend, much to everyone's horror. She's as plastic as can be -I've known her for three years, but don't know her any better from the first day I met her.
Last night we had dinner with them. It was so awful I'd rather have had my toenails taken out one by one. I haven't seen this girl since March this year. My friend and her had a nasty break up. She basically screwed him for a lot of cash, half a house, has alcoholic issues and basically causes a scene wherever she goes. Like at that engagement party I went to where she starting swearing at my friend loudly in front of all the guests. That type of stuff.
I see her last night because I had to. She first bums a cigarette from me, in a nonchalant manner of , "Oh hi, oh may I bum a smoke Lori-Loo?"
OK so as not to appear nasty, I handed one over. Two, three. She spoke to me like things were normal, like we were best friends but never see each other. It's wierd. Bizarre. Then as we are sitting at the table, she starts recounting a story about something that happened to her. I'm gobsmacked: it was totally my story and it happened to me! Is she that empty that she needs to steal other people's stories? Fuckin hell!
And to make it worse, everyone else at the table seemed to be lapping it up. Am I the only one here that can see through all this bullshit?? A week ago everyone was bitching and moaning about how she manipulates every situation and how our friend has changed since they've been together, but yet act as though everything is JUST FUCKING FINE when she's around! What gives??
Why is the world such a false and plastic place?? I so don't fit in.
