So I have been kicking this around in my head.  Check it out…

Roughly about a week ago I checked an email account that I haven’t used in a while.  In it there were several “friend requests” from some friends of mine for one of those social networks.  They had accumulated in there since I really don’t log into any of those sites much.  So I logged in to approve those friends, who know doubt by now thought I was dissing them (one had been in there close to 2 months).

After I went in there and got that done, I started clicking around.  And clicked around some more.  And then a couple more clicks on various things.  At that point I came across the profile of someone from my past.  We’re talking, like, a decade ago.  Six degrees of seperation.  Seriously.  Anyway, I briefly looked and saw what she had been up to, and gathered that she is married now with children and seems to be doing very well for herself.  Great to see.  And then I clicked on some other stuff, got distracted by something and that was it.  Kind of forgot about it.

So today I started thinking about emailing her a harmless hello.  And was about to do just that when I started having second thoughts.  I mean, we didn’t hate each other when things ended, did we?  Or at least I didn’t hate her.  Hmmm…  I honestly couldn’t tell you if things ended badly or not.  I think we were cool, and just went our separate ways.  But I’ve been wrong before.  God knows I’ve been wrong before.

So in that regard, I definitely wouldn’t want to stir up any bad memories.  And although there may have been some good memories, there were definitely some bad ones.  But a harmless hello?  Would it really be that bad?  I really have nothing to gain by saying hello.  I’d like to just to catch up.  And she is a married woman and I would not want to disrespect anyone.  But she is also an adult and I’m sure her husband wouldn’t care about a piddly email.  I don’t know.

I’m definitely leaning towards not emailing her now.  I haven’t really thought twice about it until another dork friend of mine wanted to get into my friend list today on that same website.  Don’t worry, Albert.  I’ll put you in there. :)   So I’m thinking I will just leave it alone.  Life has been just fine without communication with her.  What do you think?

  • I bet the main reason the police keep people away from a plane crash is that they don't want anybody walking in and lying down in the crash stuff. Then, when somebody comes up, they act like they just woke up and go, "What was THAT?!"
