To all my American friends, I hope you could
pardon me. It was a pretty dark time in my life,
and having come from a relationship where my childhood sweetheart
ran off with a Texan and lived happily ever after, I had an irrational hatred
for all things American for a period of a few years. Of course, it has all since
passed and I have learned to accept what happened and I have long wished
my ex, and her husband, all the best in the world.
