Baby Come Back

February 9, 2010

I've been unceremoniously dumped. I'm not sure what I did, but here I stand, rejected offering in hand, watching the tail lights fading in the distance.

Actually, that's a fabrication of sorts. I didn't even get to see the tail lights. They were here, and then they were gone--a disappearing act. Maybe I talked too much; maybe I rambled too often. Maybe...well maybe I was just too boring. Too pedestrian in my verbal banter and too narcissistic in listening to my own voice.

Whatever it was, I've lost one of you. It's a small, intimate circle of friends who drop in here now and again, and now it's one person smaller. Is it silly that that makes me sad? I can't help it; it just does. Because all of you who offer me encouragement here have become very important to me. For all of you who have stuck around, even through the rambling and the boring parts, thank you. It means more than you know.


  1. Don't sweat it, that person may have just stopped blogging and deleted their account. Otherwise, seriously, who has the patience to actually go to all the work to unfollow someone? They suck.

  2. I totally understand how you feel. Somewhere along the line, I started to think of my blogging buddies as real friends. And when they suddenly stop reading, it hurts.
