... gotta get down on Fridayyy~
Okay, that song's passé - I know, I know. But after such a long time, it feels good to actually NOT go to work on a Friday on either of my two part-time jobs.
And after such a LONG time, I was able to do an early morning jog. Perfect weather, indeed! A little foggy and kind-of chilly... but still good! :)
Reverting to my last post about communication, I found this post on Dawn Yang's blog (clapbangkiss.xanga.com/) and it's just the perfect example of how things could go from bad to worst if you're not talking face to face...
Brace yourselves people:
I'm writing you this letter to tell you that I'm leaving you forever. I've been a good man to you for 7 years & I have nothing to show for it. These last 2 weeks have been hell. ... Your boss called to tell me that you quit your job today & that was the last straw seeing how you don't tell me anything anymore. Last week, you came home & didn't even notice I had a new haircut, had cooked your favorite meal & even wore a brand new pair of silk boxers. You ate in 2 minutes, & went straight to sleep after watching all of your soaps. You don't tell me you love me anymore; you don't want sex or anything that connects us as husband & wife. Either you're cheating on me or you don't love me anymore; whatever the case, I'm gone.
P.S. don't try to find me. Your SISTER & I are moving away to West
Virginia together! Have a great life!
Nothing has made my day more than receiving your letter. It's true you & I have been married for 7 years, although a good man is a far cry from what you've been. I watch my soaps so much because they drown out your constant whining & griping. Too bad that doesn't work. I DID notice when you got a hair cut last week, but the 1st thing that came to mind was 'You look just like a girl!' Since my mother raised me not to say anything if you can't say something nice, I didn't comment. And when you cooked my favorite meal, you must have gotten me confused with MY SISTER, because I stopped eating pork 7 years ago. About those new silk boxers: I turned away from you because the $49.99 price tag was still on them, & I prayed it was a coincidence that my sister had just borrowed $50 from me that morning. After all of this, I still loved you & felt we could work it out. So when I hit the lotto for 10 million dollars, I quit my job & bought us 2 tickets to Jamaica But when I got home you were gone.. Everything happens for a reason, I guess. I hope you have the fulfilling life you always wanted. My lawyer said that the letter you wrote ensures you won't get a dime from me. So take care.
Your Ex-Wife, Rich As Hell & Free!
P.S. I don't know if I ever told you this, but my sister Carla was born Carl. I hope that's not a problem.
Lots of things to contemplate here. Though this example was put in a comedic light, it's something that we could learn from.
Thus, NEVER EVER make decisions with haste.
HAVE A HAPPY AND BLESSED FRIDAY, YA'LL!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY NUMBER ONE MAN, DAD! :)
