On Laguna Beach, everyone’s favorite guilty pleasure, Cameron and Jessica have a chat at the beach about their past (they used to hook up.) He asks her if she really thought that she’d ever end up as his girlfriend, and she says no, shaking her head as the camera pans out for effect. He then apologizes, saying he’s sorry, prompting her to ask just what he’s sorry about.
"I’m sorry I was the wrong boy," he says.
I was shocked. In one sentence, he said what we all really want to hear. Deep down, we need an apology for just that, for not being the right person. The fact that this is coming out of the mouth of a 16 year-old boy floors me, since it certainly hasn’t been said by people nearly double his age, or at least not to me.
You can only get back what you put out, so here goes.
I’m sorry I was the wrong girl.
