A friend?

A friend pinged – “goooood mornig hz u’

“Trying to smile :(”

“Stay positive, get outdoors, b active…”

“No dearth of positivity dear.”

“K, I asum u hv 2min? I’m in shit…”

After 45mins, I wrote, “Need to go, wanna tissue box.”

“Sorry, I made u cry. My story is painful. But u r close to my heart.”

“I have a nasty flu, croaky throat, hurting back and running temperature.”

“Oh! U need rest, so what do u think I shud do…”

Another 30min later I pulled the plug, only to see a SMS, “call me wen fre…need to discuss.”

    Seems like the friend was taken advantage of though with her permission as she didn’t set her boundaries, thus two minutes becomes 45 minutes, becomes another 30 minutes and so on, especially when sick! I think both were “in the wrong.” 😉 ❤

  7. There are so many times when we take friends for granted. But then those things are part and parcel of friendship. Lovely writeup 😊.
