It’s uncanny, it really is. I don’t understand how it happens, but it does…it’s like you’re putting out some energy into the universe and amazingly, it’s received by the very person (or people) that you don’t want it to. Calling it "ironic" would be quite a bit of an understatement.
How is it that right when you’ve forgotten about someone they choose to contact you again? It’s like there’s a universal Happiness Management System (HMS)™ that sends instant alerts to your exes when you’ve (finally) moved on and gotten over them and just started being happy again.
ALERT: AUBREY IS HAPPY! INTERVENE! CALL HER! EMAIL HER! IM HER! GET IN TOUCH – NOW! THIS IS YOUR LAST CHANCE TO NOT BE FORGOTTEN!
And so, without fail, they do. Out of the blue, you hear from HIM, the HIM that broke your heart and made you think you’d never, ever find anyone better. The HIM that you seriously thought of sacrificing so much for, the HIM that you had talked about having children with. The HIM that just now started falling out of your daily thoughts, allowing you to again listen to a song or do something as mundane as going to the grocery store without instantly referring to his likes and dislikes. The HIM that you thought you’d never get over, but did.
Any geekyfantastic peeps out there who want to hack into the HMS™ and render it useless? Because, really, I’m enjoying this happiness and just don’t need this now…or ever.
