People, including me, are just crazy.
I don’t know if it’s because it’s summer or what, but I have lost so many “friends” and listened to people, mostly guys, spew the most ridiculous shit. I know I graduated, but I haven’t changed - so I don’t think it’s me. Maybe it is, meh.
Oh well, I’ve learned something lately, a recurring trend, people have expiration dates says Jenny McCarthy (Love, Lust, and Faking it). It was difficult to grasp at first, especially since I had just “lost” my CBFF, but it’s true. I think I’ve been trying to salvage our friendship, but it’s been expired for a while.
There are people in your life who will only last as long as milk, simply fleeting in and out of your life. You know it’s going to end, it was fun while it lasted, but there was no real, lasting connection or bond. Others will last a little longer, like ice cream, they stay a while, make an impression, comfort you in your times of need, you have a really good time with them, and then they are gone - either you ate it all or it got frost bite, it’s done. Ice cream friendships endings are more difficult and sad. Then there are Twinkies, those are suppose to last forever, right? The friends you just can’t get rid of, and you don’t want to(: Note, they can’t get rid of you either. These are people you trust, love, respect. Those who teach you lessons, you can call whenever, and tell whatever! Not to mention you always have a great time when you are with each other and you can pick up right where you left off, not matter how long it’s been since you last spoke. And no matter how much milk or ice cream you have they will never make up for the place of a T.
It’s the Twinkies I live for, which is ironic because I have never actually eaten a Twinkie. But it’s so true, they make life a little easier. They are blessings in disguise, or clear wrappers. They may not seem extremely appealing, but when you are broke down, starving, in a desert, nothing else is going to help - those other things will spoil or need special care that you may not be able to give at the time - but a T, they’ve got your back, baby!
Either way, people have been crazy lately. It must be something in the air. Spoiling friendships, making people loopy, irritable, and unreliable. It sucks, but it’s life. And I like expiration dates, they make sense.
