Later I was Glad

It had been some time since I even thought about him. I almost never got teary eyed anymore. When his name was mentioned I could almost shrug it off. I stayed away from places I thought he may be. I just didn't go there anymore.
I was just doing my normal errand thing.
Mom saw him first. I was concentrating on the task at hand. "Isn't that Him?"
Huh? Him Who? My first thought was to run. But I was frozen. I pasted a smile on my face and Said "I didn't expect to see you here" and walked away. I felt like someone had punched me in the stomach.
Mom watched him and she said my nonchalance bothered him.
Later...I was glad my hair was straightened, my legs were tan and he didn't see me cry when I drove home.

Been there - done that - and now I live in Connecticut and he lives in California so I don't have to do it again.

Still, it's funny how that broken heart can be cracked back open again so easily. Some things just hurt worse than others.

Big hug to you!
