  • Remember that time? This is what she asks, not quite achieving the wistfulness necessary to the success of her probable performance, asking instead because she knows if I believe it it will make me happy. Sometimes it works. Other times she is genuine.

    I do not think we are friends anymore. I say it not to be cruel or dramatic- simply that I think we no longer fit. Friend- noun- \ˈfrend\- one attached to another by affection or esteem.
