Just SadMy employer announced last week that there would be about 40 people that would be let go. Funny how I was sort of wishing I'd be included. You know how when you get stuck for a long time in a job and you only make yourself go deeper and deeper into that sticky mud. Unable to make yourself available for other opportunities. The longer you stay, the harder it is to leave.
But faerie wasn't included. The company also asked for volunteers, and for most, they were simply escorted out. A good friend volunteered and yesterday was my friend's last day then heading off to Ontario. There were no goodbyes. We both pranced around on the thought of the last day since last week... never really planning on anything between then and after. I doubt either of us can say much about it. Often times, we simply stare at each other.
My friend tried looking for me before walking out of the building. Faerie hid herself away. I never got the chance to say goodbye. I didn't really want to get the chance. I didn't really want to say goodbye. And I don't know which is sadder.
