Ex Encounter

I ran into one of my exes on the bus yesterday. Not the Big Bad one, one of the interim ones. I loved his family. He was ok. Kind of dumb and a bit dull, but not too bad to look at, and he had a nice mom who used to help me with essays.

Thankfully, I looked ok, ie, I remembered to put makeup on and wasn’t covered in pimples. And we really only chatted for a couple of minutes, because I had to get off the bus. I didn’t even have time to ask him how he was. Which is just as well, because I don’t care. I know he is married to a healthy-outdoorsy girl. I’d have liked to ask after his mother and brother and sister. But him? Meh.

Heartless? Probably. But if the past is a foreign country, my visa has expired.

    Eh, I don’t think it’s heartless. There are those relationships that end in fire, and those tend to have curiosity attached for awhile after; but the relationships that end in indifference are over because of indifference.

    Well, exactly. I was sad to lose his family and the friends he introduced me to, but not really sad to lose him. It was done.

    Sometimes running into the meh ones is good, especially at the end when they’re still meh.

    Yeah. It was nice to be able to check in with myself and say, “Ok, you made the right call.”

    Just out of. Before I met you, if you can believe that!
