Unexpected

Ran into J. this weekend. After making some small talk, she told me, “I never realized what a cool person you are.” This is her way of acknowledging that we both (years ago, and not concurrently) slept with the same man, and that no one has subsequently made any fuss or tried to kill anyone. (Lord knows we’ve had opportunities.) It was a warm moment, complete with drinks and properly flattering lighting, no bad feelings. She looked happy. So did he. They both, I think, meant to appreciate my silence and lack of ill will – let’s face it, in my position, what else do I have to offer? She said to me, “Good things happen after 30! Good things happen after 40!” Which was nice of her to say, though I felt sad afterwards.
