Apesar da minha linha de pensamento em que as pessoas só se metem em encrencas amorosas porque optam por fazer da vida uma grande escola prática de teatro, deixo vocês com essa reflexão de Nick Hornby, no melhor trecho de Alta Fidelidade:
I know I’m being stupid, but I don’t want her coming to my shop. If she came into my shop, I might really get to like her, and then I’d be waiting for her to come in all the time, and then when she did come in I’d be nervous and stupid, and probably end up asking her out for a drink in some cack-handed roundabout way, and either she wouldn’t catch my drift, and I’d feel like an idiot, or she’d turn me down flat, and I’d feel like an idiot. And on the way home after the gig, I’m already wondering whether she’ll come tomorrow, and whether it will mean anything if she does, and if it does mean something, then which one of us it will mean something to, although Barry is probably a nonstarter.
Fuck. I hate all this stuff. How old do you have to get before it stops?
