My WH's AP called herself "His Daisy".
As a Lit grad, I laughed hysterically at the irony of it. Because she's right - my husband is the stuck-in-the-past, lying, insecure Gatsby and she IS the immature, immoral floozy who needs attention.
Of course, she didn't mean it like that. She was only looking at the romanticised idea of a man loving his old girlfriend for years and never moving on.
It's nice to think of the story that way, but that was certainly not the point Fitzgerald was making. If we romanticise anything it's about letting go of the romanticised past and learning that life goes on no matter what, things change, and we need to learn how to move forward into reality, and not run from ourselves or our past. Twats.
So she's absolutely right. She IS Daisy, and my stupid foggy WH IS Gatsby, living a double life.
