I can’t believe I almost forgot this, but when my last serious girlfriend and I broke up, like finally FINALLY broke up, I ended the conversation by bowing to her. I don’t even remember why or how, I just remember that I did it. I think it was out of a lack of any other words. We had literally exhausted all of the words, and I just needed to bring it to some kind of end that didn’t involve any prolonged contact (everyone knows the old 5 minute sad hug that turns into a sad kiss, right? That one’s a killer).
I wish I could remember if I was laughing when I did it. I think I probably didn’t laugh until I came up from the bow to face her again, if at all. It’s funny to think of how exasperated I must have been to punctuate what was, up to that point, one of the saddest moments in my entire life, with a stupid joke for solely my entertainment.
If that sounds like an immature way to end a relationship, I submit that it is significantly MORE mature than sitting in a hatchback for four hours finding different ways to say the same three things over and over and over. Besides, bowing is a sign of respect in many cultures, and a sign of disrespect in almost none.
Although, were I wearing a cap when it happened, I probably would have tipped it instead.
