Long ago, I lost my heart in a tragic affair. I came so close to getting the SEXY woman of my dreams, which makes it all the more regrettable.


お*しい close! Not as in, "Godzilla is close to Ultraman's size". Close, as in you throw a ball to a little kid and he drops it and you are like 'That was close! Almost!' 1/2 KANA
お*しむ to regret something, to have a little grudge about it.
