the mock replies

its been well over a week… and i haven't heard a single thing from drummer boy. well i've been trying my darndest to get over it. afterall if he can't even bother to reply then what hope do i even have in him at all right?

but that said this is my least favorite (albeit unfortunately most common) form of closure. the closure where you don’t really have any closure but is just forced to close it 'coz it expired.

so in typical me fashion, i have come up with a few ways drummer boy could have provided a relatively sufficient closure. but of 'coz i have put it across far more eloquently than he ever could…

from: drummer boy
to: jo
subject: re: prelude to a chat… (the nice version)

hey jo,

sorry for the late reply… it's been a somewhat confusing time and i guess i just needed some time to think bout it.

anyhow i'm glad in some way we are getting some form of communication going on even if we are both too awkward and nervous to do it face to face.

i meant it when i told you that i liked you… but perhaps we drifted apart or somehow things changed. i guess it has come down to this and i think perhaps it's best for us to just move on.

do take care and hopefully we can still be friends.

from: drummer boy
to: jo
subject: re: prelude to a chat… (the i-don't-know version)

hey jo,

i really don't know what to say and i don't know why. i think it's best that we just leave it as that.

*insert drummer boy’s name*

from: drummer boy
to: jo
subject: re: prelude to a chat… (the blunt version)

sorry i'm not interested

any of those versions would have at least told me something… given me some proper closure. but what did i get instead?

from: drummer boy
to: jo
subject: re: prelude to a chat… (the real version)

oh wait, nothing.... there was just an empty inbox...

except that after a week of non contact, he decides to IM me and have a good engaging conversation... the best in a long time... seriously what's up with that?

Every day that goes by where he doesn't talk about it, is a day I think he's a bigger arse for not saying something.

Are you kidding? He IM'ed you like it was nothing???

At 9:57 AM, Blogger jo said...

scotty: yeah that is certainly one way to look at it to help me to get over him...

saneandsingle: i know! unbelievable right? but that said i haven't brought it up in any of our IMs either. it's like we're both pretending that that email never happened. but dammit i would still like a reply!

nevergoingbackagain: aww thanks hun... you're amazing too. sigh it's kinda breaking my heart too having him act like a jerk...

I think I would prefer the blunt version, "sorry i'm not interested."

Life would be easier if people would just stop dickin' around.

he is being confusion personified... if he acts like nothing happend then i suppose that shows what he is worth... nothing!

really jo, ur worth so much more.

jade: actually in a way it's true. you might as well just tell me something like "you?? no way!" at least then i know exactly where i stand.

crashy: i like how you put that. you do put that so eloquently. yeah well it's hard for me to progress to the part where i really believe that he is worth nothing... to me.
