Congratulating you on your engagement, I debate over the exclamation point. It needs to sound genuine. I want it to be genuine. I’m really not messaging you to remind you I exist.
I go with the exclamation point.
Afterward, I consider the relief as my heart plunks unceremoniously, without any sense of grace or dramatics, out of my chest. It’s not like I can talk to anyone about it. I’m not even sure what I would say.
So I tell the whole world.
You never read my blog anyway.
