This is going to be short because I am busy moving and really don't have the time to even make a little post, but my head is kind of exploding.
I have a friend here in Wichita named Mallory, we worked together and we were pretty close. One thing about Mallory: She loves the drama. If there is no drama happening at the time she will find some, if there is none to be found she will make some. Now, I try to accept people despite less favorable quirks they may have because, hey, I have them too! (Short attention span anyone?)
Well randomly I received a cryptic text message from Mallory, it said; "I KNOW what you did! Lose my phone number!!!"
Well I am glad one of us knows what I did because I sure don't. Apparently she has now deleted her Facebook page, doesn't answer her phone (for me anyway) or respond to texts.
I don't have the time or energy for this, I know I haven't done anything that would merit this turn of events, but I sort of wondered when I was going to be cut off for the sake of continuing the drama. Guess I am glad it happened just in time for me to be pulling up stakes here.
On the brighter side of things, this will inspire me to tackle a goal I have had in mind for a while:
completely refraining from gossip or talking badly about people behind their backs. Since I will be starting with a clean slate in a new town I think this is the perfect opportunity for me to avoid this type of negative behavior. I think once people recognize I do not participate in or appreciate gossip that they will either avoid me from the onset, or discontinue gossiping in my presence.
There. I think I just needed to vent for a second. Now if you will excuse me, I am going to go paint some more.
