This week, as you know, two ex-boyfriend types contacted me. But also an old friend who reads the blog and emails occasionally actually picked up the phone and called! Of course, we didn't actually talk, but it added to the boomerang week. Also, my friend in Boston ran into her most recent ex on the subway and had to make nicey nicey chat - she hadn't seen him since the breakup (and it was a bad one). Kiwi's old friend from college randomly got in touch with her this weekend. And a litany of people from high school that I really don't care about keep wanting to be my facebook friend.
Its just weird that this seems to be happening to other people too. So please, dear internet friends, check the caller id before you pick up the phone. The person on the other side is likely to be someone you don't want to talk to! I wonder when it will be safe to live normally again?
