I’m trying to find something clever to say, but that would require me to understand why I like this so much. Truth is, I don’t. Every time I re-read the story it feels more real, and I like it even more. It’s funny, short, sweet, but utterly emotional (at least for me). Every word has weight on it, even when it is ‘a petty email’. The past relationship was already complicated, the time that passed has washed away whatever it was at any point, and yet, emotion remains. This response could get longer than the story, so I’ll wrap it up with the only thing worth writing about it: Bravo, this is amazing
