Welcome back, blog peeps O’Love …. I don’t know about you, but I’m enjoying this little exercise in honesty for the month of November. It’s helped me find my writing mojo (such as it is) again.
Day 09 â†’ Someone you didnâ€™t want to let go, but just drifted.
I find work friends to be the ones that drift off a bit. While you’re there with them every day, you get to know all kinds of stuff but when you no longer have that workplace in common, then other things don’t seem as in common either.
For this one, I’ve chosen my friend Lynnette or as she was known here on this blog in 2007 “Mrs. Tool Time” (she’s married to a guy with the same name as the character on the show Tool Time). In the year or so that I worked with her, she taught me so much – how to be strong, how not to play stupid games and stand up for what I believed in the face of a screaming maniac (the idiot we worked with) and how to be a friend. She became Screamy’s right hand (wo)man and deserves all the good that comes her way just for reading him the riot act a time or thirty. God bless her.
I definitely miss her – I see her on FB now and again but she’s not one to spend a lot of time there so I don’t really know what’s up with her. I’ll always consider her a pal, though, and I bet we would pick right back up where we left off.
Who’s your Drifty McDrifterson?
