Well Yeah...

Spoken (via text) to friend KD this afternoon. I was hoping he would go hang with his GF and her family. And he drove up there and did some shopping with her. As soon as any hint of Christmas Happiness started to show though, he had issues with it. And so left and came back to town. He thinks he’d rather be alone. I don’t know how long he’s been back to his place, but I suspect he sat in his car for quite sometime. And then I roused him.

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.

Later y’all!

Happy Holidaze!

Yeah. The year my brother died (2002) I spent Christmas all alone. Me, the cats, and about six rented videos. Here's a bit of advice: when all alone after a great tragedy, do NOT rent "Wit." I had read the reviews and thought it would be, you know, witty.

I guess it was. All about the wit and humor in dying alone of cancer. If there was a worse movie to watch, I don't know what it would have been.

*Shakes that off*

yes. We will, sooner or later, be alone on the worst day of the year to be alone... but I don't know if that's better than wishing we were alone.

Been a tough one for friend KD.

Thanks for the movie advise. *laughs* Doesn't really sound like a flick I would enjoy either.

Sounds like you're being a great friend.

I'm glad you're feeling a little better, and I hope you have a good holiday!

I'm trying to be. He'll be all right given time I think.

Been a good one so far.
