Where did you bump into your ex and how was that?
I bumped into my ex at the grocery tonight. I haven’t seen her in over ten years and we were together for 3 years. Lived together for 2 years. Both in our late twenties at the time.
Not paying attention, picking out a frozen pizza, with a cart full of junk food because I shopped hungry and I was wearing my dirty work clothes and she tapped me on the shoulder.
We talked for about ten minutes catching up. She showed me a picture of her kid and I showed her a few of mine. I took off my hat and showed her how gray my hair is getting and she said how she hates how she now has wrinkles under her eyes. They were hardly noticeable.
She seemed nervous. We both sort of stood there for a moment and I smiled and said “nice seeing you” and she did the same.
We broke up for good reasons but man do I have so many mixed emotions right now.
