non-response: Part 1

27 Mar

I don’t want to respond to you for fear of starting that cycle. The one where I respond, careful to not write anything too cryptic, needy or optimistic, and then wait for you to respond. In waiting for you to write me back, one of two things will happen: you will make me frett over your impending response for days, or you will never respond. For my sake, I hope it is option 2. Honestly though, both are going to suck equally.

With regards to the first, I am sure you will leave ample space between exchanges, much like I am doing now. I am also operating under the understanding that you do this for the same ridiculous reason I do: beacuse you like the idea of knowing that someone is thinking about you.

Consider this my non-response. I will see you at the wedding. It will be fun, because I will be drunk. Save up all of your responses until then.
