Today (and a couple times before that) I was feeling rather nostalgic, so I listened to Taylor Swift’s Love Story to make feel like a prepubescent girl again, back to an age when it seemed that romantic comedies were dramatic reenactments of true stories and you could dream of meeting ‘the one’ someday and still be taken somewhat seriously. To my surprise, the song was surprisingly relatable, even to a jaded college student who has tasted the bitterness of reality. I mean, who hasn’t referenced the Scarlet Letter in some form or the other?
I fear that people who haven’t heard the song will judge me severely. I know the others already have.
