It’s hard to smile right now. I started a comedic halloween themed thread to cheer me up, but I still have a hard time smiling. This one’s real, not a joke, and not even remotely funny.
We broke up about two weeks ago. My decision. We were always fighting and I just couldn’t handle it any more. She had broken up with me plenty of times, and then always came back the next day. This time I broke up with her, and I meant it. Still do, I suppose, but she knows I’m still her friend.
About a week ago she adopted a rescue dog from the humane society. Jet black gorgeous 40 pound mutt about 2 years old. A bit skittish though. She’s walking the dog the night before last, and gets startled by a car whipping around a corner way too fast. The dog pulls out of her collar and bolts. I live just up the street and my ex knocks on the door at 12:30 AM. She hasn’t been leaving me alone since we broke up, but what can I do? She lost her dog. She doesn’t have a car so we hop in my truck and go looking for the thing. No luck. Couldn’t find her.
'Till this morning.
Bashfull was hit by a car. And left. On the side of the road. Who has to bury her? I do. And I did.
Like I said, it’s hard to smile right now.
