Chapter 8: The Sperm Bank Surprise

When you lived as long as i have, you tend to think you’ve heard everything, that there’s nothing left that can shock you anymore. You grow a little complacent about your so-called knowledge of the world, and then every once in a while, something comes along that jolts you out of your smug cocoon of superiority, that reminds you all over again that you dont understand the first thing about life.

The genetic lottery has been too kind to you, that she had come up with all the winning numbers.

It goes without saying that everyone wants to be beautiful, but beauty in a woman can sometimes be a curse.

so true.. 這一章講Tom去sperm bank時候翻成人雜誌看到Aurora他自己sis的事, 然後接著說了那之前之後的故事神馬的…說Aurora長得好看, 但beauty in a woman can sometimes be a curse, 年輕時候生了小孩, 後來兜兜轉轉好像做的每個決定都荒唐, 整個人不停的陷入各式各樣的錯誤里. 拍成人雜誌, 拍porno, 直到後來出了事才來找Tom。那時候Tom就接她們過來住啊照顧啊神馬的, 結果後來不靠譜的Aurora跟一個樂隊去了西岸, 然後就又沒聯繫了. (#不靠譜的人生啊!!!) 再後來Aurora聯繫Tom說要見面, 是Aurora說她要結婚了, 希望Tom可以walk her down the aisle. 至於這期間發生的事情, 她就只是一筆帶過說, 那個樂隊很快解散了, 跟了另外一個樂隊, there were men and there weremore men, 後來還吸了毒神馬的, 不靠譜神馬的!後來終於下決心改一改神馬的, 把孩子給了她的lesbian couple friend, 自己去rm,了rehab, 在rehab時候遇到了現在的老公. 看起來是個各種manipulative, control-freak那種, 但Tom說她也沒聽神馬的…==吃完飯到最後還說道婚禮時見啊以後一定要保持聯繫啊神馬的, 可婚禮大概都完了 Aurora也沒聯繫Tom..就大概這麼一個故事, 看的各種唏噓.

小時候覺得人生如果過的太乖的話就太虧了, 當然要經歷過多才精彩, 那時候還沒有不靠譜這個term, 想的最多的也就是寬慰自己說犯個錯有什麽啊循規蹈矩最傻了, 結果就才成了現在這麼個不靠譜的人。身邊的朋友啊包括父母啊都一致認為我不靠譜, 唉, 最慘的大概就是在應該靠譜的年紀還是不靠譜, 而當年可以有不靠譜的機會時候還不懂得享受….其實老娘特他媽靠譜好嗎!!!摔!!!
