Man oh man. Do I know about these feelings. I’d love to be able to do or say something to help him out. I also know how hollow all that sounds when spoken. I know he feels alone in the world now. Only child. Both parents and sets of grandparents gone. He just thinks he’d rather be alone. Maybe he would. I know I did.
Not sure it was actually what was best for me and those around me.
I’ll just try to keep a dialog open with him. I know how he feels though. I’m sorry he has to go through this, but we all do eventually. We sometimes outlive those we love. It’s natural. It is the order of things.
And yeah. Imma let my friends take me out tonight. Should be fun!
I rarely give up control like this and allow myself to be put into a situation where it would be difficult to extricate me. Been burned a few times along those lines. A growing experience, perhaps.
Think I’ll fill a flask with some Jameson’s and spread a little cheer mesel’! I’ve got a little greenery (shhhhh. I don’t live in Colorado or Washington State!) to spare as well. Some of that will come along too.
First though, I need to eat some lunch. Yeah, I know it’s a bit late for lunch. Tough tinsel.
