Things Fall Apart

Why are relationships so damn hard? Tell me, why's it gotta be so complicated? So, I meet this really nice guy. He's a writer, he's totally brilliant, totally exotic (he's from Nigeria). Long story short, I fall for him. I'm planning our future together - I've got the fancy china all picked out, I've practically named our kids. Finally, my life looks kinda ... simple. Like all the puzzle pieces are in place. Then, in 1990, he gets in a car accident, and he's paralyzed from the waist down. Murphy's Fucking Law!! Right? Completely ruins our sex life!!!

By the way, sorry, I should have mentioned this earlier - I'm talking about Chinua Achebe.
