Call It Off

"I won't regret saying this, this thing I'm saying. Is it better than keeping my mouth shut that goes without saying". I spent this week with a particular song playing on my ipod [& my head]. It wa's "Call It Off" by Tegan and Sara, a track I first heard years go. For some [disturbing] reasons I was able to relate perfectly with the lyrics this week. It got to a point I began to watch the video impression on Youtube till I decided to download it.

For those who haven't heard it, well, the song talked about a relationship you end and still find yourself questioning if you did the right thing. "Maybe I would have been something you'd be good at, Maybe you would have been something I'd be good at. But now we'll never know". The song was based on the experience of one of the singers who found herself in such position and ended up checking the ex out online watching how she had moved on. And began to "wonder if it was the thing to do."

Back to me, I'll admit I check out my exs online despite not being on talking terms and being the one initiating the break up most times. I feel my sudden familiarity with this song as a sign it was getting to me. most of 'em had moved on, few were married and I was still...still Ade. "I won't be sad but incase I go there everyday, to make myself feel  bad, there's a chance I'll start to wonder if this was the thing to do."


  1. u check' em sumtimes, Hw r u sure they don't u too? And wonder if it was the thing to do. Girls! They'll always come,go and den come again.

    1. Sure, that's a possibility. I've been in situations I'm chatting with a girl and she says something about me she must have read on my blog/Facebook wall.

      There were even girls who call at monthly interval and ask questions like "Where are you now? What are you doing with your life?" as if they wanted to know my progress status in life.
