Letter to a dear friend

I know that our relationship started out pretty intense.

It was like, we were almost inseparable from the beginning.  As soon as I had a break at lunch, I would be with you - even if it was just for a few moments.  After work, I would be with you until my nap.  Then, I would wake up and we would be together until I had to break away to make dinner - though sometimes I was able to have you keep me company in the kitchen as I cooked.

After dinner, we were truly inseparable.  I was at your whim.  Anytime you let me know you wanted some attention I was there to give it to you.  I was always there.

Lately, I have been a lot less into you.

Trust, though, that it's not you.

It's me.

I have sometimes gone days without any contact with you.  When we do get back together, I play catchup and make up for all the lost time.  But after those precious moments, there are even more days of no contact.

I know that I don't want to completely part from you, but I do need more space.

I take pleasure in knowing that being with you has helped me meet new people and learn new words.  I have also been able to increased my confidence in being able to sometimes beat my mother in her own game.

April was hard for our relationship.  I was really busy with blogging with the A-Z Challenge, I was really busy with coaching, and really busy with teaching.  My phone is so old that I don't even have enough memory on it to be able to use it to meet up with you.  As soon as school is over and I have to return my iPad to the school, I don't know what I will do.  I may have to buy some sort of new device to help keep us together.

Until then, I will try and be with you as much as I can without becoming obsessed again, Words With Friends.

  2. I know so many people addicted to this game! Funny post. I wasn't clued in to the picture so it kept me anging for a while!

    1. Thanks! It is really so addictive. Especially once you start winning, or when you are losing and want to make a comeback.

  3. Ha! This made me laugh, since I'm obsessed with it too. :-)

    1. I'm glad you feel my pain and love for the game. It's a hard affliction to get rid of. Even though I'm trying to cut back, when I play again, I still have to make moves on all the 20 or so games I have going.

  4. Too funny. My WWF and I have been separated by life lately, too. :-)

    1. WWF and Hanging With Friends are really missing us right now, right? I only play about every third day or so now.

  5. If I had to give up my smartphone, Words With Friends is the only thing I'd miss.

    1. I wish my smartphone had enough memory to play WWF. Gaining enough room to be able to play might be reason enough for me to get a new phone.

    1. It is such a hard game to stay away from once you get into it, isn't it?!

  8. Hah! I thought this might've been about Facebook till I got to the end (as that's the relationship I'm slacking off on as the result of a hella busy April). Fun post!

    1. FB was a past addiction, as well. Hope your May is less busy than your April!
