June: A Cameron in your life?

Sara asks, "Have you ever had a Jenna or a Cameron in your life? Are you still in touch?"


Melissa Walker said...

I have one. He's a best friend from long ago who is definitely still there. We'll dance at my wedding in July!

Little Willow said...

I haven't. I have had friends, and I have friends, but no one like Jenna or Cameron, and no shared past like theirs.

That's fantastic, Melissa.

Its called a pain in my---yeah I do.

We--talk. We also want to kill said person for making promises they didn't keep and then tell me they might be coming back.

I'm thinking mallet to the frontal lobe, what about you?

Oh no, Silence! I'm sorry your Cameron is a painful presence in your life. I had someone like that - actually probably a couple. Somehow I attracted intense relationships as a young person. It's strange to be in a deep friendship or relationship with someone, leave (or be left), then see them again - there's this history, but then lots of new stories in the meantime that you no longer share.

I had a Cameron. I've lost him. His name was Wally Bridgham. I'm off to check on Facebook for him.

I put him in HOLD ME TIGHT. My red-headed friend.

Cracking up, Silence.

Lorie Ann Grover said...

I didn't find him. :~(

Silence is Golden, But Ducktape is Silver said...

Awww Lori too bad I was hoping you'd find him... Mysapce maybe?

It's not so much that it's painful but more fusterating, Holly... I'd made up my mind to just let it all go and I swear the next day the bombshell 'but I'm thinking of coming back for next year' got dropped like a house on me... And if there's anything I truly hate it's false hope... I just had a year of it. I am far past done with it all. I just wanted my friend back, was that so hard?

[sigh] like I said... Extremely fusterating... Beats TV soaps anyday!

I wish I had a Cameron or a Jenna. I had two best best friends in grade school and I think about them both from time to time, wishing that we might reconnect. It would be crazy to see them married or with kids. That might be a reason to get on facebook... but it didn't work for Lorie Ann :)
