Daily Prompt: Audience of One Picture the one person in the world you really wish were reading your blog. Write her or him a letter.
I knew it was over the night you left. It felt like a final goodbye. I wish you would’ve been a man and told me the truth. I’m curious to know why you left, but I think I know the answer.
I heard you married the other girl, and now you’re divorced. Who else did you cheat on her with?
Let’s see…..I’m 40 now, so that makes you….50. I wonder if you ever grew up. I thought I still loved/missed you, but now I know I loved/missed what we had. I can’t deny it…it was blast to be with you. I have absolutely no regrets. But I was 23, that’s way too young to know about true love.
I have a few things to thank you for.
1. Sushi. LOVE IT.
3. How to make a good martini.
4. How to tell a good joke (timing you always said).
5. The best advice you EVER gave me: Always try something first, then you can say you’ve done it, even if you didn’t like it. Like oysters. Vile little things.
6. Knowing what to NOT allow in a relationship (“I didn’t sleep with her, she only gave me head, so I don’t know why you’re upset.” I can’t BELIEVE how stupid I was then!! I must have been completely punch drunk in lust with you).
Thanks for all of that.
You said I would never meet anyone as great as you. Just so you know, you were 100% wrong. I met a great guy and I’ve been with him for 10 years (married for 7) and he’s
everything you’re not: kind, respectful, loving. Most important of all: he loves me, and doesn’t care that my skin is a different color.
I used to wish that you’d rot in hell. But now I pray that you’re well, and that you’ve met someone special. But I can assure you that you will NEVER meet anyone as great as me.
