I know we’ve spent a lot of time together this year but it’s just not working out. Yes, it’s true, I love that you give me so many reasons to knit with wool. Okay, and I do love the way you encourage me to wear the things I knit with wool, too. It’s also true that you’re beautiful when you glisten in the sunlight and so peaceful looking when gather up gently on the naked tree branches. All wet and heavy.
Maybe at another time we could try things again. Not today, though.
I’ve met some else. We’ve gotten close in the last few weeks. We’ve walked the dogs. Gone on bikes rides. Just enjoyed being together, outside, in the sun.
It started out innocent enough.
I don’t mean to rub your face in it, but… I’m sorry, truly I am… This new relationship, it’s so full of promise. I want to explore my options. You know, that old adage? Don’t settle on the first season. Experience two or three before you decide. I think it goes back to Debutantes and balls….
I didn’t think you would hold it against me though. I was sure you could appreciate the charming gifts I’ve received. Sweet little buds innocently peeking out on the trees. And, please? How can anyone resist the temptation of tulips!?! Their freshness and promise of beautiful colors?
I thought you wanted me to be happy? It didn’t have to be this way. I was willing to try again later, in several months. Not now though. I’m done. This is the last straw. It’s OVER. I never want to see you again! LOOK at what you’ve DONE!
