So Many Wheels
Four roommates walk into a bar
Smiling, joking, and laughing
The camaraderie is immense
And one by one three girls walk in
And three of the roommates’ smiles
Grow wider and brighter
Every round is seven drinks
And four seats are enough
Because there are laps for the ladies
3 sets of glowing smiles
And then one in the corner
Trying desperately to match them
The seventh wheel
They drink the night away
And no one mentions the odd number
He himself is the only one thinking about it
And when they get home
They split off to their rooms
And for three there are condoms
And a comforting sleep
For the other there’s a kleenex
And when they wake there is breakfast
Or a quick and tender goodbye
And when he wakes he stays put
Or he exits with a practiced quiet
He just can’t handle the morning routines
Of the first six wheels
His mates and their queens
“We’re a mobile. We balance each other, and we support each other. Without one, all the others will tip over. That’s why we sacrifice ourselves for others. Maybe some part in our crazy, demigod mind knows this, even if we ourselves don’t.”
You know what sucks. Being in a big group of friends and everyone just starts dating everyone. And i’m just sitting here like “fuck. why can’t all of us just be friends, this is going to be nothing but a bunch of people saying ‘no i love you more’ just smiley faces all the time in chats, and half the time they are just on their own. THEN when all of you break up which i already know is going to happen there is going to be a fuck ton of drama.” So i just feel like not talking to them anymore. Not to mention my least favorite person on the planet right now just started “dating” a very good friend of mine.
OH AND! How everyone else just goes along with it and is just like “aww my otp you are so cute” like really. Thats ALL i hear anymore. if you date whatever just stop making every conversation about you and whoever you are dating every 2 seconds.
I always feel like a third wheel :/ Whether it’s with people who are just friends with each other or I’m with my friend and their girlfriend/boyfriend. I could be with my closest friend and still feel like a third wheel when they have their boyfriend or girlfriend with them. I’m either:
- All alone anyway
- The third wheel
- The fifth wheel
- Or even the seventh wheel
It sucks so much and there’s nothing I can do about it :(
- Me: Now everyone has someone....that's great.
- Brother: I know it's awesome. Now we can all go out on dates together with our girlfriends or boyfriends.
- Me: Yep. You and your girl, Liz and Chris, Shay and Marv, Beth and....
- Brother: ....and
- Me: ......
- Brother: Oh.....oh yeah....Well....you can tag along if you want. You know since you don't have anyone. Hey! You could be like our chauffeur!
- Me: ........How very sweet of you.
Woe is Me
I just got turned into the seventh wheel. Ouch.
Why’d you have to only invite couples? Ya’ll are going to be all smooching up on each other and I’m going to have to start random conversations with the creepy guy standing in line next to me.
Way to make this whole thing awkward. You’re lucky we’re bestest friends for life or else I’d be flipping tables up in here.
