Wait Until Dark

I have a stalker.  I’m not kidding.  Should any of you be contacted by someone by the name of Chris under the pretense he is worried about me, I just want to make it abundantly clear he is no friend of mine.  I’m not going to tell any of you who you can and can’t be friends with but I just want to reiterate that we aren’t friends.  He has been reaching out to my exes, my mother, and my friends.  Chris is no friend of mine.  I’m not going to get into a bunch of shit and dredge.

I’ll sum it up.  We grew up together.  We were both delinquents.  We were shitty to each other.  Many years ago I got wise and stopped associating with him.  Then a couple years back he got hit by a bus.  He spewed all this shit about being a changed man and not taking life or people for granted.  I gave him the benefit of the doubt.  It took about two months to realize he hadn’t changed a bit and stopped associating with him completely.

No one is all good or all bad.  I get that.  I’m no saint.  But our relationship was toxic at best so I choose not to be an enabler.   I have no animosity toward him.  I just don’t want him anywhere near my life.  But he’s aggressively making overtures to people I know.

Lindsay made a point to me the other day that just about everyone she meets knows me and wields that reality like it’s a badge of honour.  That makes sense.  I keep it real.  I am honest and I am real.  The ONLY people who don’t like me or want to see me fall are people I’ve rejected or haven’t given enough attention to.  That’s not me being arrogant.  It’s true.  That is my power.  I didn’t ask for it.  It’s just a reality.

Anyway I hate having to resort to this petulant bullshit and I apologize.  I’m not posting his full name because I don’t want to give him the attention he’s looking for.  Please be vigilant and don’t feel the need to contact me every damn time he contacts you.  Just don’t discuss me.  Or discuss me and don’t tell me about it.  I don’t care.  It’s a free country.  I’m just pointing out we’re not friends.
