I seem to have a problem. I have just broken one of my favourite mugs. But it is more than just a mug. It is a bittersweet symbol of my schooldays. The girl who I fancied for long periods in school gave the mug to me for my 18th birthday. It is "The Friends" and it bears the message "THE FRIENDS can connect in a mysterious way without even speaking. Perhaps they have AMAZING MAGICAL POWERS. Perhaps they are both just PECULIAR IN THE HEAD". Did she mean this to be a comment on our friendship? I did think that we connected in quite a close way. Or id she mean it as a subtle signal that we are just friends and nothing more?
Now that the mug is broken, I feel I can ask what she meant, but so long afterwards, it seems strange to ask. Shall I send her a message on facebook? Shall I write on her wall on the same site? Should I just forget about it? I phoned my friend Kate and asked what I should do. She wants me to write on her wall, so she can see the response (nosey!) but I am still not sure!
We haven't spoken in over a year, so there is no doubt that my feelings for her are finished and we are not even good friends particularly, but it still seems a bit strange to ask. I'll let you know if anything happens.
