I can’t remember if I went to her birthday last year, I got an invitation, but that’s due to the fact that she never unfriended me on facebook after our relationship hit a major speedbump.
I still have the pair of pants I was wearing the last time we went out together – I ripped the crotch open atempting to get into her Jeep.
I got a late-night invitation to my friend Kelly’s birthday party and I’m really excited for this weekend. We stopped being friends because I made a really self-serving decision, that I wouldn’t change given the chance, and ultimately it looked like I thought my job was more important than our friendship in her time of need.
She lost her job, and our friendship was ruined.
A year or so passed, without a word from either camp – our mutual friends respected the rift and we carried on like nothing had happened.
We ended up both going to Britt’s sister’s birthday and reconnecting. I’m giving myself a little too much credit here, since she was the one who stepped up and decided to be the bigger person. She definitely could have called me out for being such a callous bitch – but she let it slide. And I respect that about her.
We don’t hang out like we used to anymore, but our relationship is stronger than ever.
I look forward to out-drinking her on Saturday.
