"That does really, really suck. You need to throw your own party. Not to make the friends choose sides, but to invite other people that you like and wallow in the good will. You need some good will."

"I have been betrayed BIG TIME by people who I thought were friends.  I sympathize, and fuck them.  Inexplicably rude.  But people are inexplicable."

"Kathy - thank you. I wrote this right after it happened. I was so raw that I couldn't be any way other than brutally honest. It was written in about 30 seconds of raw, boiling, bleeding emotion."

"I hope you unfriended and blocked them. I find that to be the best way to get past Facebook hurts. Blocking gives you the power and you won't be stumbling over their comments elsewhere, since you probably have mutual friends. But yeah, been…"

"I don't blame you for being hurt. They could have at least made up something for a response rather than ignore. Ignoring is damn rude. Pfffft to them, anyway !"

Plain Old Mean

Posted on August 3, 2013 at 4:50am 2 Comments

So, and then, she invites a couple dozen of our mutual friends to a weekend-long party she's having. I am dis-invited and unfriended three weeks before the party for no reason than I can fathom and they're all over there having fun and posting photos of smiley happy faces on Facebook and not a one has reached out to me and I have no idea what she's telling them because I just can't for the life of me think of what she did as anything but cruel and heartless and spiteful and mean.

Seven Blocks Away

There aren't too many ways to interpret it when you find out, via FaceBook, that two out-of-town mutual friends are posting from a bar seven blocks away from the very couch you're sitting on at home on a Saturday night.

And when you make a comment on their happy smiling photo that's maybe a little bit self-pitying about being seven blocks away they ignore it, but respond to…

I wanted to share a recent email exchange with my niece. She's the daughter of my half-sister, and only a handful of years younger than I am. We're both in our 40's. How did I handle this? Other thoughts?

She Was Fifteen

Posted on September 7, 2012 at 2:00pm 0 Comments

She was fifteen and pregnant when I met her.

She was the granddaughter of the couple next door. They lived in the cottage and took care of the farm that my dad owned. The entire family would gather there on Sundays and I’d go over and listen and eat with them. Wonder bread with gravy and turkey or meatloaf, mashed potatoes. There was always coffee and Coke and lots of cigarette smoke at the table. The men mostly talked about cars and equipment and maybe about people they knew and what…
