There’s a song that appears in a particular scene of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, I believe in the first season, probably in the first episodes. I remember the song so clearly and I can almost picture what is happening in the scene as the song plays. But not exactly. Not quite.
The reason my mind is now plagued with this song is that I was browsing around on OKCupid, a dating site that is mildly amusing but as a whole just annoys me. I created a new profile, picked a new username, uploaded a photo and started browsing. Window shopping, if you will, for a girl for fantasy. Perhaps more, but right now, just for fantasy. One in particular had the username that spelled out Just a Girl by changing and omitting letters to make it look clever.
Mid-shag, with hubs pounding away behind me, this song just popped into my head. And it’s funny how just a word can create such a memory. But it got me thinking. I’m just a girl. I can’t control everything or everyone. I want the things I want and nothing more. I do for others to a fault. I want to please my husband even though I have little or no interest in being with another woman. I’m smart, and creative, caring and kind. But in the end, I’m just a girl.
