Old Beaus and ex-Husbands
The past month or so seems to be a time for reunions of sorts. To start off, about a month ago an old boyfriend contacted me. I haven't seen nor talked with this man in probably five to ten years. He said he was planning a business trip to Albuquerque and would like to get together. Fine. Well, the trip was cancelled but he has continued to email me.
Then, the dastardly ex-husband called me. This happening after I threatened him with a restraining order if he didn't leave me alone. The threat was a couple of years ago and I haven't really heard from him since. Why such a drastic measure? It's a long story and one day I shall commit it to writing.
As a somewhat explanatory statement, let me tell you that at one point I was so enraged at this man that homicidal thoughts overtook my brain. Instead I wrote a book about him - fictionalized of course - in which he has been murdered. That was the only way I could let go of the toxic feelings that were poisoning me.
His call? He too was planning a trip to Albuquerque and wanted to see me. I politely explained that the Border Patrol and Homeland Security would await his arrival. Hehehehe He's such a stone coward, I have no doubt he believed me and quivered in his size 12's.
Then last week another old boyfriend contacted me. Just emails and that's as much as I want, though his last email intimated he would like to visit. No.
This is all very strange to me and I'm intrigued by the synchronicity of it. What lesson am I to learn? What observations am I to make? If you have any ideas, please share them with me.
