Text from Friend:

HELLO?

Yeesh when you go radio silent you really go radio silent.

Everything ok?!

Almost instant response:

Sorry, FRIEND, been really sick. Never felt this bad before. Still trying to recuperate. Had to go to urgent care etc.

————————————-

SILENCE.

Five days later.

Text from that friend:

How are you feeling? You like my sweet new coat?

Instant response from me:

Looks great!

—————————————————

You know when you're really sick and your friend doesn't follow up until five days later? Yeah, that happened to me once.

And here I am to bitch about it. I have forgiven but I have not forgotten.

Anything you need to unburden?

Go to BAY.kinja.com to Bitch Amongst Yourselves. I'm sure someone can create that... Eventually.

(P.S. To that friend, I keed I keed. I'm not holding a grudge.)

Blame KidNeryl for this.

And finally, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO THE INCOMPARABLE HABBOIL WHO HAS NOW JOINED THE LEGION OF OLD FARTS. <3
