And the hits just keep on coming. . . . today on my way to attend a deposition, I did a quick check of Fac.eb.ook. . . . only to see an ultrasound photo posted by an old friend (someone I haven't seen in over 20 years). Mind you, an old friend who is 42 years old and has been married less than six months. Oh, and did I mention that she already has a child? And that her child is a girl and this baby is (apparently) a boy?
In (what has become) typical fashion, I felt gut-punched. No feelings of happiness for her, not only initially but for several minutes afterwards. I didn't post a congratulations in a comment to her photo or on her "wall." Nope.
All I could think was "Why her and not me?!"
Yeah. Good times.
My sister suggested a Fa.ce.bo.ok break. Probably a good suggestion.
