“Not tonight, dear, I have a headache.”
So goes the ol’ lame excuse.
But Nicole Gordon of Atlanta really had a solid reason for sittin’ out an amorous episode or two: The potential sexy-time needs of her boyfriend, Jerrontae Cain, notwithstanding, she really did have a sizable noggin throb.
And not only that, but there was an even more substantial reason the 42-year-old may wanna take a raincheck on the come-hithers for a Carnal Cruise to Pleasureland from her boarding beau: Jerrontae had shot her in the head.
Normally, a bullet to the cerebellum might cause a relationship to downright fall apart, but heck — it’s like Sharon said to Susan in The Parent Trap:
“That’s how true love creates its beautiful agony — all splendid lovers had just dreadful times! Pelias and Melisande, Daphnis and Chloë. History’s just jammed with stories of lovers parted by some silly thing!”
How deep is your love? Nicole and Jerrontae’s is — at the very least — skull deep.
So they sojourned on for nearly a couple months — when it’s true love, ya just gotta give it a shot.
But eventually, a family member encouraged Nic to hoof it to the hospital over her terrible pounding above the neck.
And doctors were shocked by what they found: There was a lead slug embedded at the base of her skull.
Nicole was just as surprised: Apparently, the trauma of the headshot had caused her to lose her memory. She had no idea her main squeeze had squeezed — not another woman, but a trigger.
She thought she had been cut by flying glass. But her ex, Jerrontae Cain, had a secret – he had shot her. https://t.co/BXv3m582Gc

She told doctors she recalled arguing with Jerrontae in their car while she was driving, and that the driver’s side window had shattered and fallen on her, knocking her unconscious. Also: The car had crashed into a tree.
I can’t imagine Jerrontae’s surprise when she woke up and was all, “My head hurts. But you wanna get some waffles?”
Actually, it didn’t happen quite that way, but close enough: They went to his mom’s house and treated a cut to the back of her head, which she thought was from the glass.
On the other side of an issued warrant, Jerrontae Cain, 39, was taken into custody after being found hiding in an attic.
Nicole was shot in 2017.
Jerrontae took it like a pro — he’d been arrested 13 times before.
At trial, surely all mouths hung agape as Nicole’s friends testified her ex had physically abused her in the past.
As reported by The Daily Mail, doctors have declined to remove the bullet in Nicole’s head, for fear the procedure would kill her.
True love makes a heart skip a beat; Nicole’s almost made hers skip the rest, too.
Cupid shoots an arrow; Jerrontae got a bit more modern.
But in the end, Nicole found freedom and her firearmin’ former flame got fitted for a jailbird jumpsuit. He’ll be wearing it for 25 years.
Given that turnabout’s fair play, the previously-passion-fueled pistoleer had better watch out — they have love guns in prison, too. But I don’t think they go for the back of the head. Their aim’s a little…lower.
And as Jerrontae taught Nicole — and as the 1976 superhit says — “Love hurts.”
