UPDATED: Love and Regret

According to an old movie (Love Story), love means never having to say you're sorry.

So does that mean the next time I need to apologize, I can just say "I love you" instead?

I better take down that disparaging post about Michael Wong...


I should have been clearer. I was not talking about relationships here. I meant at work or in other non-relationship ways. You know, like this:

Boss: Johnson, you screwed up that order. Now Buffalo has no gaskets.

Johnson: I love you, boss.

Boss: What the f@#$ did you just say to me. Back up... what's the matter with you?

Johnson: I love you.

Boss: You're fired, you freak. Put your pants back on and get out of this building.

As for relationships, there are times when "I love you" is the only correct response even if it seems that it is a totally unrelated response.

"Do I look fat in this outfit?"

"I love you."

"No, really, do I?"

"I love you. Get your coat. We're going to the mall."


"Because I have no flowers to give you."

"I love you too."

Then again, especially on this side of the world, you're expected to show someone you love them, not tell them.

Talk is cheap.

LV is not.

Nobody loves me, I can tell you that. I buy all my guitars myself!

You mean just any girl, or a (hypothetical) girlfriend?

Oh no, it wasn't just the picture. It's the whole concept. I was just afraid of having to tell Michael I lo... That was too close. I think we do learn from movies, though few if any of us have them as a sole resource. I also think that what little I might think I know about love is probably at least half wrong.

If we don't support the movies that deserve it, we get the movies that we deserve.
