Darrell was full of beans yesterday morning, in fact I’d describe his mood as rambunctious. He’d been out and got himself a haircut, some hair gel and a new t-shirt …. when wham, bam, thank you mam ….. the wind was well and truly taken out of his sails when he logged on to AOL to find that Stacey Solomon was in a very interesting condition of a baby type nature!
I heard him rush upstairs and slam his bedroom door ….. and knew that he needed some space.
After an hour or so I tentively tapped on his door and asked if I could enter his innermost sanctum. He was a little red eyed and bunged up nasally but he was surprisingly philosophical …..
He said he knew that his feelings for Stacey were just a maahooosive crush and though he dreamt of a fairytale ending, he realised that it would never be…….
He was very happy for Stacey and would always be her No.1 fan, BUT, it was time for him to move on in matters of the heart …. after all, he’d gotten over the fragrant Cheryl Cole and he could/would…… in time … get over Stacey ….
He was so brave …. my heart ached for him …. but knowing Darrell, he would soon bounce back …..
I left Darrell with his thoughts and his CD player …… playing the same Bee Gees song over and over again ….“How can you mend a broken heart?
How can you stop the rain from falling down?
How can you stop the sun from shining?
What makes the world go round?
How can you mend this broken man?
How can a loser ever win?
Please help me mend my broken heart and let me live again”
What is he like?
