isn't it funny

how the oldest, deadest wounds come to life again at the smallest touch? Zombie wounds, I guess--put to grave long ago, but ever willing to lurch to their hideous feet and start chewing on your brain.

People say pain passes with time. ...but how much time could it possibly take? Is there a formula? I'd love to know when it will all just go away.

i think with breakups there's a formula... SUPPOSEDLY it takes half as long as you are with a person to get over them. i don't know if that is true though. i'd guess it's more exponential than that. from personal experience, actually, i think it's not true (but i tend to hold on to things for far too long). for other things, i'm not too sure.

I think Alice K is probably right but then each time these sore points are scratched the hurt is less - for me anyway.

Hang in there. Isn't Saturday the big H.P. day...

Why thank you Earthling.

x@y - you are right about HP! How could I have been so careless and forgotton to make plans already?

I feel ill equipped to contribute. I mourn my own zombie wounds everyday without respite.

However...

I am--at this very moment--refilling my stapler and had a very happy thought about you. Good vibes coming your way any moment now.
