We’re better now. The crushing disappointment of yesterday has been warped into anger, which burned for a while and was settled with the hurling of curses and humor (that always seems to work for us), and soothed with the discussion and anticipation of the upcoming restorative trip.
One of the parties involved, 12 hours after being the cause of the crushing disappointment, had the stunningly poor taste to send Himself an email Christmas card saying “HappyHolidays from all of us at The Place !, which resulted in a flurry of emails between Himself and Myself, mainly stating that, the least they could have done after all that was send flowers!
Gosh I wish I could go into details, but Himself request not. Business was involved, and High Finance. It was all very heady stuff and quite exciting, but where there’s great excitement, there’s always the potential for equally great disappointment, and that’s what happened. The good news is that we are no worse off than we were when all this started, and that’s a very good thing. I’ll just call it all fantasy and carry on.
Perspective helps. No one died. What happened to us was merely a disappointment and we’ll get over it. We didn’t lose anything, other than daydreams and some hope.
