Now Playing: I Will Follow-U2
Topic: I Know Nothing
Let's kick off with a big round of applause for Alan who tracked down my secret blog that none of you know about. I have just had a look at his blog and there is a very good picture of an owl on it today. I like owls very much indeed.
Owls aside, I'm mildly irritated this evening. I bumped into to someone who used to be my friend on the way home from work. Why does this woman persist in pretending to like me? I have absolutely no idea what I said or did to upset her. One day she announced that she was moving house and would forward her new contact details to me, but never did. Then every time I bumped into her she'd ask for my phone number so that we could arrange to go out, but never offered her number in return. Every time I see her I feel like screaming 'I'm not stupid, I know you hate me, just drop the act.' Unfortunately I'm just too well brought up to carry on in such a manner.
Tonight I saw her walking towards me and tried to avoid eye contact so that I could sneak past unnoticed. However she spotted me and fussed round me for at least five minutes, which felt like at least a week. I'm really starting to get annoyed with this ridiculous situation. Would it be bad form to explain to her that I know she has no wish to spend any time in my company and that whilst I cannot pretend to understand such an abnormal feeling, I'm not all that bothered, then ask her if we can just stop this pointless charade of friendship?
I'm not a huge fan of people who always say what they mean, as they are nearly always ill mannered blow hards but I'd prefer that to this series excruciating meetings.
