Life with Pecora: Told by Mr. Pecoro
Para este maratón amoroso en loquepensamos.com decidí hablar de mi historia de amor. Sí, hay cosas que me gustaría guardar para mí misma pero esta idea no fue completamente mía si no de mi novio, el famoso Don Pecoro (como lo di a conocer en Twitter).
Así que a partir de este momento, Mr. Pecoro tomará el control de mi cuenta para contarles lo insoportable que es estar conmigo:
All the years where valentine has cropped up i have always been single no matter what. I have had terrible luck with women in the past but this year (unless i am cursed and she breaks up with me a day before valentines) me and Mrs. Pecora will be celebrating valentines day in our own special way.
Im going to try and dissect our relationship to give you, the viewer, an insight into Me and Mrs. Pecora’s lives. Me and Mrs. Pecora are not a perfect couple, we don’t pretend to be either. We just know that we want a life together and we are going to make it work. So i hope this is entertaining or at the very least constructive.
Long distance is painful but educational.
When we first met (as friends) we had both discussed into length how stupid long distance relationships were, how they never work, what was the point if you can’t see that person in the flesh blah blah blah. A couple of months went by of talking on Skype and Facebook and on Valentines Day she tells me that she likes me and instinctively i tell her that i really like her too.
Then after that we decide we are going to see each other… So yeah, what the fuck happened there!?
Well it turns out that when you have made a connection with someone that you truly care about you realice that your feelings just told your head that they are a fucking hypocrite and also fuck you logic you don’t know shit. Im pretty sure thats how i remember it.
The saving took months and we talked all the way through that time, skyping and whatsapping pretty much everyday but things were hard at times. Having arguments over Skype can be a massive pain in the arse, partly it can be because of technical issues but mainly because when the arguments are over, you cant be there to comfort the other person with a physical touch. That can be hard on both of us sometimes.
I learnt a lot about Mrs. Pecora through video chat. Being in the presence of somebody gives a lot more information than Skype obviously, but in this way I had to listen well and convey my feelings clearly to her. I realized that we started to know each other a lot more faster and know what our hangups were and our little clicks because rather than discovering them in action we had already given examples of them by talking about our pasts and that it’s a great part of skyping i think.
I finally went to see her on october 2014 for five weeks and then she came over for 6 weeks in december. It was honestly the best time of my life and it reassured me that i want spend a whole lot of time with Mrs Pecora.
We are in the midst of a chaotic turmoil, we want to be together but we want to do things right. This brings with it an array of contrasting ideas which in turn brings a heavy cloud of emotions, insecurity, excitement, frustration, hope, but we deal with them because we know that we are planning for something really great, our lives.
Almost a year has passed by since we decided to be together and just a few days before Valentine’s Day, Mrs. Pecora told me she wanted to give me my Valentine’s Day present. I was really curious and excited. How can she even give it to me right now? Then, she sent me this link to youtube…
Memories are such a precious thing in this type of relationships, there are more intense due to how short they are. Maybe we never realize that when we can see the person we love every single day in real life, but when you are far apart, everything, every single thing is worth remembering and cherish.
