They say confession is good for the soul but it just didn't feel right. Maybe I should have waited longer.
My friend is old; between you and me, I'd say she's dying! Yet she still struggles valiantly to please and accept todays modern ways. She's useless! Way too slow to keep up to me. Yet we've been together for an awfully long time.....longer in fact than several of my husbands combined. You might even say I've outgrown her!
I been there thru operations that were undertaken to keep her youthful. But I think finally the time has come where nothing more will help.
Today was the day to get her out of my life. I've been putting it off for months now. In fact I've already found a new friend. In the last couple of years we've been together more & more. I can take my new friend places; my old friend suffers from agoraphobia. She never wanted to leave home.
I can do all kinds of things that I couldn't with my old friend. The time it took her to get ready was absolutely mind boggling!
I'd put it off long enough. Today was D-day. I took back the last few items that were mine & still important to me. ....and then I dumped her! Unceremoniously!
I still can't believe it! It's just not like me! And even though I've no room for her in my life, I know where she's at. She'd take me back in a heart beat.
Here's a photo of my old friend:Can you make her out, sitting in the corner with her face all shiny?
and here's my new friendlooking ever so sleek and sophisticated.
