The weekend was busy. I had very little time to myself, so I was more than a little surprised when I got a text message from a number I never heard of before. The message was out of left field, The message referred to a friendship that was no longer welcome.
I did some digging and eventually found out that the message was from someone who told me to get bent nearly four years ago. Obviously, he had forgotten about the time he clearly told me that our friendship was over, for whatever fucked-up reasons he had at that time. I wrote about the experience when it happened, and then I moved on.
It was rather unnerving to get that text, but it reminded me that I made the right choice by never responding directly to it all those years ago.
