Lately I’ve been submitting to a subtle form of torture via my friends’ IM display names.
I’ve decided to quit submitting and move these friends who tug at my heart strings to a new collapsed category.
If I don’t know that you might be drunk, I won’t know what’s going on, or worry that it’s my fault.
And I won’t be racked with guilt wondering if I might had some cause in the tears forming behind your eyes.
Sure, I’m a wimp, but maybe I’ll find a little more peace in my quiet life.
