I’m happy he’s going to be going on vacation, because he needs it, but I’m even happier that he’ll only be gone for a week. Not because I’ll miss seeing him, because I barely get to now, but because he probably won’t call me and I’m going to miss his voice.
So, last night my best friend messaged me and said that he bought new shoes. I meant to ask him if he liked the shoes and instead what I typed was “do you like shoes?” He calls me this morning and he’s like “yes, I like shoes….” I’ve done a lot of stupid things in my life but, I don’t know if I should chalk that up to my stupidity, the fact that it was almost 11 pm, or the fact that I was on the phone with a friend while I was messaging him and I can’t have two conversations at the same time.
How you can treat someone who’s been there for you and helped you more than anybody else in the last five years like shit is beyond me. It breaks my heart because everyone knows that he’s such a good guy. He’s a bad boy with a heart of gold. He’s loyal to those who are loyal to him. All I can think about is how much he’s done for me and I just can’t imagine a life without him in it. Never push a loyal person past their breaking point.
I still get so depressed when he talks about moving away. I know he’s excited about it but, for me, it’s a constant reminder that I’m going to be losing my best friend. But, I am genuinely excited that in a week, he’s going to take a vacation, go visit his brother, and then go pay respect to his parents. He deserves a break and Saturday cannot come fast enough.
