I just found myself searching for an semi-recent email within my gmail account. What a mistake! While searching for the email, I came across some old IMs from someone I used to be quite close with, ahhh…..the wonders of gmail and gchat. Anyway, seeing just a tease of what we used to spend our days and nights talking about was hard. You see, we don’t talk anymore besides the once in the blue moon exchange, so I decided to search for all of the IMs with that person and delete them.
Why is it, if we don’t talk anymore, and this person is all but out of my life, did it hurt so much to see and then delete the IMs? Maybe I miss them. Maybe it’s because for a while they were a major part of my daily life and now they’re just a memory and a sidebar.
I don’t know.
I wish I knew.
