Out of the Woodwork

The week that was is one that I don't care to repeat given the choice. Strange one it was too.

Received a totally unexpected 'blast from the past' in the form of a call from someone I hadn't heard from in more than 10 years. My phone number was obtained via 'less than ethical' means due to his… err… connections and I nearly fell off my chair when I heard that familiar voice saying my name.

Once upon a time long ago in a far away land, there was a very silly girl who almost killed herself because of this man, her first love. (*Ed. groans and rolls eyes*) The girl was saved by kind souls whom she at the time cursed for bringing her back from the brink of the 'state of permanent oblivion' she craved. She was only 16 when she met this man who was 9 years older than her. She fell in love with what her teenage mind perceived to be his 'worldly ways', his charm, his rugged manliness (Excuse me while I get a bucket *gag gag* --Ed.) She was stupid enough to believe his pledge of undying love (At this rate we may need a tub ‒ Ed.} so she flew to that land far, far away from home thinking that she would come back to him someday and live happily ever after. (Oh the naïveté of youth! ‒ Ed.} He wrote her almost every day, sometimes several times a day. One summer she came back home to find that her Prince Quite Disarming had married someone else, a fact that he had conveniently forgotten to mention in his daily missives to her. She crashed into a deep, dark depression that ended with her in a sterile room with cold white walls, the contents of her stomach pumped, in that land far, far away. Prince Bleepin' Charming and she never spoke again.

Fast forward 15 years later and that familiar honeyed baritone is trying to make small talk down a telephone line. Admittedly, the first thought that crossed her mind was "WTF?!" She managed to maintain her composure throughout the conversation, being as polite and civil as her upbringing had trained her to be.

He wants to meet up ‒ eat, drink, laugh, be merry… rekindle old flames.

Some people are SO delusional. To paraphrase a certain Ms. Possible, I have SO moved on... and even that is making an understatement.

Never get depressed about someone deceiving you. Not worth it, and there is always better out there.

I can't blame you. What's in the past, should be kept there. Can't understand that guys rationale for thinking you'd fall for that again.

Which brings me to my next thought.

What happened to the woman he married? Dumped his sorry ass?!
