So while doing whatnot through my daily routines online, a friend of mine whom I had not spoken to for quite a long time, suddenly spoke to me once more.
This was online, FYI, and I have never met the person in person.
He tells me he's getting out of a cancer-ward, probably permanently!
I get all excited and write "Ohey, awesum! It's thrilling to hear!"
Moments later, he writes "Eh... What's so 'awesum' about it...?"
It didn't say "out of". It said "into".
I hastily reply, falling flat on the floor with a long apology, feeling the awkwardness creep up on me. I HATE that kind of feeling, and I just about cringe, curling up in fetal-position on my chair as I write.
He's already offline. Didn't get my reply.
... That wall next to me suddenly seemed lonely. Perhaps it'd like some company with my forehead. I'm sure they'll get along smashingly.
