Never confuse a single defeat with a final defeat. ~ F. Scott Fitzgerald
Am I missing something here? Are they talking about the same person I knew?
You see, she is one of those people who seemed to take an instant dislike to me, from the minute we met. For the life of me, I can't think of a thing I said or did to make her react to me that way, but she did. Her animosity towards me lasted until she died. I thought maybe I was imagining it, but my Dear Hubby picked up on it, too, so at least I knew I wasn't crazy. Try as I might, I couldn't change the way she felt about me. I didn't lose any sleep over it, but it always puzzled me. Because of the way she treated me I have to admit she wasn't one of my favorite people on earth. Tho a lot of people were devastated at her passing I can't say I spent any time grieving. That bothered me, because I'm usually a person who generally gets along well with just about anybody.
They say pheromones are what attract us to people, especially those of the opposite sex. Do you think pheromones also have something to do with the attraction between friends as well? I mean, I don't go around sniffing at people to see if I want to befriend them or not, but what else would cause someone to take an instant dislike to another person? I can't imagine why she would have been jealous of me or felt competetive with me or anything else.
I'm up way too late, but this was puzzling me once again, as I saw something written about her once more.
I wish I could say I loved her, that I miss her too.
But, in all honesty, I don't.
