Well, with a friend like this….
I had a really good friend once…actually not very long ago at all…but then, one freezing cold, grey winter day (yesterday), he decided it would be fun to start sending texts…all day long…from beachfront establishments in Key West, Florida.
So, obviously, we are friends no more.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for posting vacation photos on your Facebook page or Instagram or whatnot…where people have the choice to look long and hard..or ignore all together…but TEXTS…come on, seriously.
Why you got to be so cruel?
What makes it worse…if possible…is that this friend has a somewhat unlimited supply of something that I covet a great deal…TIME.
Don’t get me wrong, when he works, he works really hard….but, when he’s off…his days stretch out before him like a long story waiting to be written. Actually, if I’m being honest, maybe more like a movie (If you’re thinking The Hangover, you’re probably on the mark).
The photos alone were malicious enough, but the comments that accompanied them were plain old spiteful.
“I was going to come home tomorrow, but I don’t think so”
“Tough day…can’t you see my drink is empty”
“Morning Coffee. On the beach.”
“Made a move, my new view”
“Holding down the fort.”
“Taking one for the team.”
“4 pounds of stone crab claws…sorry I forgot to send a pic”
“Text later. Going for a swim.”
“Think I’m going to hang in for another week or so. I’m up for the challenge.”
Did I mention that Key West, Florida is one of my all-time favorite places?
I’m going to miss my friend. But not his texts. ;)
Be well. Or, as he would say, “See you out there. Good game.”
