Lately I’ve been consumed by Julie’s cancer and how this impacts our life, but today I’m a bit distracted.
A friend of Julie’s told her about a week ago that she was seeing someone. That the two of them had decided to commit and see things through.
Good for them, right?
Well, I can only assume that the friend wasn’t aware that I know the woman she was talking about.
Today I was at the gun range and I bumped into this woman. We started chatting and I asked, “So how are things going with you a D?”
Apparently, she had NO clue what I was talking about. They aren’t dating, they’ve had a cup of coffee once, several months ago and exchanged a few texts and phone calls but nothing romantic ever developed.
What on earth would make a 41 year old woman lie about something like that?
I could see if she was trying to manipulate an ex or make a current love interest jealous but there was nothing to gain by this dishonesty.
In fact, when I see her now, I look at her with distrust and caution.
