"Ah, so it has come to this..." followed by the thunk of the guillotine.
"Ah, so it has come to this..." followed by the clatter of the gallows door.
|Dude's havin' a really bad day.|
"Ah, so it has come to this..." followed by your newly minted ex deciding to take up residence in a tent in the back yard. (Oh, is THAT ever a story!)
"Ah, so it has come to this..." followed by the amicable termination of a coaching relationship.
I would rather break up with my ex again. That was an easier decision.
The "this" that it has come to is that my circumstances have changed and we are no longer meeting each others needs. DW is an elite coach who coaches elite athletes to spectacular finishes. I am a broken down duck that needs something a lot more basic. With everything that has happened, this is the last thing I want to be dealing with, but as was probably true with the above speakers in the guillotine, gallows, and tent, sometimes life doesn't take your personal preferences into account. At least I am not sleeping in a tent.
