I have a friend that I've had for over ten years. We've gone through everything together. We've been room-mates, employees, partners in crime.
We've had as much ups as we have downs.
Right now, we're down.
For the stupidest reason.
And this happens at least once a year, maybe twice if we're lucky. Something, somewhere will happen and our dominant personalities (often referred to as stubbornness), will cause the world to slip off its axis and we hate each other for a few weeks before returning to our happy go-lucky relationship.
Apparently it's time for us to stop talking to one another.
Because of a truck.
A little background is that my friend is planning her wedding and she's "disappointed" because my husband sold his prized possession to purchase his truck instead of me buying my bridesmaids dress.
My husband and I have had a ROUGH two years. So when my husband asks if he can sell his most favorite thing to buy another most favorite thing, I think about all the stress and crap he's been through lately and I say yes.
I know that I need to purchase a bridesmaid dress and have arranged to pay for it by using layaway since I had some medical bills come up and diapers to purchase.
But my friend sees this as the biggest disappointment since the Titanic sank. Maybe because I didn't demand my husband buy my dress, instead allowing him to purchase a truck he's coveted since he was a child.
I have no clue what the problem really is.
She won't talk to me.
She's ignored all my phone calls, all my texts, my emails. She's jumped to conclusions because of who knows. This blog post is probably hammering the last nail in the coffin, but I had to say something. I had to post this because it's eating away at me. This ridiculous fight is in the back of my head all day. It's distracting me from my work, my life, my everything.
And I should be used to this. I should know better than to give a fuck, because she doesn't.
She doesn't care to call and ask me what's up. She doesn't care to call me and tell me that she think I'm being stupid. She doesn't care to do any of this, not even call and question the health of her god-child.
She does nothing.
