More Luke than Christopher

***Warning: You may not want to read this post if you haven't seen the season finale of Gilmore Girls.***

We all make mistakes in life, those last minute decisions made in a moment of panic or desperation that either turn out to be harmless or alter the course of our destiny forever. Imagine my shock when I decided to pay a visit to Stars Hollow yesterday and saw that final scene with Lorelai in bed with Christopher. How familiar was that face that screamed "Oh shit, what have I done," without moving a muscle? As disappointed as I was, I knew what few errant twists of fate it took to get there. For Lorelai it was months of feeling like she was on the backburner in Luke's life and that immediate broken heart (and probably a little bit of old feelings for Christopher, etc., etc.). In my own life, see how easily those bad decisions come to me. Sure, one more drink won't hurt. I'm sure it's just a leak in the oil pan. Not talking to the mystery guy yet AGAIN!*

* Yes, I saw him again last night and froze like a deer in the headlights of an oncoming vehicle. I saw him 3 out of 5 days last week and managed to not say a word. Soon fate is going to flip me off.


  1. My moments usually involve opening my mouth. ew, that sounds weird. I meant talking-wise.

  2. It's going to be okay Serena... if it's fated to happen, then the timing will be right for both of you to actually talk to each other.

    But how exciting!!

  3. Happily - Funny you say that b/c the post really wasn't about him. He was something I threw in at the end. It was more about all the decisions we make in our lives on the spur of the moment that could really change our future relationships (both friend and romantic).

  4. well, i figured it had something to do with your post, else you wouldn't have mentioned it :-P

    i was just thinking today that if i hadn't have stopped at starbucks on the way to work if i would have been in the car crash i saw when i headed the rest of the way to base. fate is a fickle friend.

  5. at least you got some drama going on there...keeps things interesting

  6. if i kept my mouth shut more often, i wouldn't have those types of moments.
