Today I've been furnished with a reminder. I was going to say a "gentle reminder" but it's really not at all gentle. This was in my inbox today:
"....Your method for picking friends is odd. It's hard to get a kick out of you when you don't let me. It's also odd how much alike we are. ( I can tell by your interests, and I dearly love your partner). You hurt people sometimes though. Do you care? Just wondering."
Lordy, the truth hurts sometimes. I guess there are mirrors in our lives for a reason. You'll excuse me while I turn inward for a bit. I've got some reflection to do.
