Do you ever have those days where you’d much rather pull the covers back up, snuggle into your pillow and forget you have responsibilities?
I’m kind of having that week…
It starts innocent enough (and for once it isn’t about my kids making me insane). If I want to be totally honest it started over a week ago. Without going into too much detail I spoke with an old friend from a couple years ago (gotta love the interweb) and we chatted back and forth and I thought
Okay that was kind of nice to talk again
I went about my merry way. My email was going to be passed on to some others we hadn’t seen in awhile and I got kind of excited about maybe connecting with some other people as well. So has my mailbox been flooded? Has my phone been ringing? Unless that was them at 3 am the other night then the answer to that would be no.
I’m not entirely sure what the point of contacting me was about. I haven’t heard from them again and no one else has said hello. I’m not overly surprised I suppose but the thing is that it would have been nice to talk, maybe even meet up.
It felt like a car dealer’s bait and switch trick. Get all comfy with a How the heck are you??! email and then disappear all over again like they never existed in the first place.
I’m finding with Facebook, Twitter and blogging this is pretty common. Mostly with Facebook and if I’m being honest I suppose I’m not really looking to be anything more than curious when I say okay to your friend requests. Of course I’d love to know what you’ve been doing in the past 14 years (can it really have been that long??) but I’m not going to send chatty emails and then stow away from sight for another 14 years.
What bugs me is the personal chitty chatty email and then the disappearing act. I can not be the only person who has experienced this.
Have you had the “Let’s be friends again” email? Is there one person you would like to reconnect with?
