More on the rogue birthday card... I snickered when I imagined myself writing deceased across the envelope and sending it back. Or maybe, "relationship deceased." What would I do if I had received such a message from a card I (didn't) send. Nothing. I wouldn't even look for an obit in their paper. I already mourned. She's already dead to me. But it's weird she's still alive and silent and cold and reticent. It still hurts, obviously. But she quit talking to me. Why send me a card? Probably in regard for our past. I hate the past. Chuck it.
