Yesterday I had one of those forgetting what happened between us blips. You know, the ones when something happens and you immediately think of him. You reach for the phone to call and laugh about whatever it was that prompted the need to call in the first place. In this case it was trees, not just any trees.. My trees. It was a private joke we had about trees I planted in school. Whenever we passed them in the car he would say,”hey guess what?”, “what?”, “Wanna know who planted those trees?”and I would say “Me!!”
And we would giggle. Every time without fail. Silly I know but it became one of those weird tradition skit type things that we just did.
But then it dawned on me. I’ll never call him again. I’ll never laugh about those trees or any of our little “things” again.
It made me sad. Only for a second. But sad nonetheless.
