Tonight, two girls boarded two planes headed for two boys in two states. One couple is engaged to be married. The other is split up. And yet perhaps the “broken” couple is just as close as the other.

I thought of these two girls as I drove home tonight. Their excitement, their true emotions, and the way their relationships have unfolded these past few years. How is it that they have moved along such separate but parallel paths?

It’s as if they are both walking along the same river, but on opposite sides.

    This entry made me think of this:

    “2 little girls growing out of their training bras
    this little girl breaks furniture
    this little girl breaks laws”

    It’s an Ani DiFranco song called “Two Little Girls”.
