I had an brief but interesting exchange this morning. A friend of mine mentioned that he was taking a break from social media, and he didn't want me to think he was ignoring me.
Well, the thing is - I hadn't felt ignored. Of all my friends, he's one of the kindest, most thoughtful people I've ever known. I told him I don't take roll.
And that's basically true. I will say that a few months ago, I got a mysterious friend request from the friend of a friend. I felt kind of like it was a surveillance invitation, but I accepted. And now, that person is gone from my friend list. When she de-camped, I know not. But she got whatever intelligence she needed and no mas.
But the only reason I kept tabs on this is because it was really, really weird.
Anyway, I think it's exceptionally kind of my friend to let me know why he's been/will be absent.
Which makes me sad, because I think of people who have been far less kind in my life. "Friends" who have been thoughtless or outright mean. Enemies. Frenemies.
And the of course, anemones:
Thankfully, the weekend is nigh. I can relax, go watch some hockey and maybe eat one really lovely decadent meal with some more friends.
I think maybe I should be grateful for the good friends that are out there. Don't stress about the mysteries, the enemies, the frenemies and the anemones (land or sea).
