You ever know somebody that has spent nearly their entire relationship straddling the line of what you demand of them? They never go far enough to the other side of that line for you to be fully justified in taking action, and yet it’s obvious that they will never go any more to the righteous side than they have to.
And then one day they cross the line you laid out as clearly as possible and it’s all over. Your anger at what they did is completely overshadowed by the fact that it’s all over and you don’t have to worry about it any longer. And you almost want to thank them for making you mad.
That’s about how I feel right now.
Contrary to the impression I might have given you, this has nothing to do with Rick or anyone else I have expressly posted on. It’s actually sorta business-related. I’ll write all about it at some point, but for now I am savoring the severing.
