So, there’s a story that’s been floating around the blogosphere since late yesterday. And though I’ve tried my hardest not to succumb to my weaker, snarkier impulses, I am finally caving in and posting it here.
Apparently, Jennifer Aniston penned a love poem for boyfriend John Mayer as a Christmas gift. Mayer responded in kind by setting Aniston’s words to music, and offering up the love song to Jen as a New Year’s present.
While I am aware that it is wrong to mock gestures so undeniably sweet, you have to get a load of these lyrics, which have been causing me to erupt into spontaneous fits of laughter for the better part of the past 12 hours. A sampling, courtesy of Star Magazine:
"Lucky in love, lucky in love," the song begins. "Didn't forget me when I asked you to leave me."
Guess that clarifies who dumped whom!
It continues, “Didn't forget me/ Now you're alongside me/ You've brought luck to love/ I've been hit by a truck in love.”
I don’t know about you, but I think it’s the “hit by a truck” part that really makes it…
