Listen, we need to talk. I’ve been seeing someone else. Yes, it’s python. I know I said I didn’t like python, but I never really gave it a chance before, and now that I have there’s an undeniable attraction.
Of course I’m still attracted to you! With your integrated testing frameworks, hipster cache, and glossy web 2.0 mystique, how could I not be? But there are some areas where you just aren’t giving me what I need. How many times have we talked about linked data? I’ve told you how much I want to try it, but every time I mention that you try to get me to have a three-way with java, and I’ve told you before that’s just not my scene. I had the same conversation with python, and it was so easy, it just sort of happened. I don’t think I can let that go.
It isn’t as if you haven’t been playing the field too. Aside from your ongoing thing with java, every time I go to a ruby event these days it actually ends up being about erlang or maya. I know you have an adventurous streak, and that’s one of the things I love about you, but most of the time I just want to be able to get my work done. Python is going to help me do that. I hope you understand.
No, I’m not breaking up with you! We have so many great projects we’re working on together, and there’s so much we’ve planned to do together that I would never want to give up on. I just wanted to tell you about this python thing before you heard about it somewhere else, and let you know there’s room in my heart for both of you.
