Dear Blog

Look, Blog, I know we haven’t been seeing each other much recently. Yes, we both agreed that we’d try a short separation and that we’d see other people. Well, I think I’m ready to come back — that is, if you’ll have me.

Oh, you know me. I haven’t been doing anything in our time apart.
Me? Seeing anyone? No, of course not.

Oh, her? She’s nothing. She was just….
Look, I had writer’s block! What was I supposed to do? I couldn’t write anything! Not only that, but nothing was going on in my life that was even worth writing about. She was there for me when I was feeling down and let me express myself creatively, but I’m back now. I’m wiser and a better person — the person you deserve to have in your life. I’m here to write again.

No, Blog, of course she didn’t mean anything. She was just… for fun.
Besides, you and I were separated at the time, so I — Blog, please don’t turn your back on me. Don’t make this harder than it already is.

I don’t know why you’re making such a big deal about this. I mean, it’s not like you didn’t see anyone while we were away.

Oh. Really? You didn’t see… anyone? Not a single person?

You don’t mean that, Blog. Blog, please stop saying that.

Look, I can say hurtful things too, you know.

I don’t think you calling me names is going to get us anywhere. I need you to listen to me. Please, Blog. Please hear what I have to say.

Blog… I’m sorry. If I hurt you, I didn’t mean to. You know how much you mean to me.
It hasn’t been easy for either of us, but I think that we can get things back to how they used to be. This is what I want for us — to start over. And this time, I’ll pay more attention to you and attend to your needs. You deserve the best that I can give you.

I love you, Blog. And I always will.

    It’s scary how well you do that.

    And I’d say the picture reminds me of me and my writing, but my writing isn’t that welcoming. It’s usually in a snit.

    Glad you’re back. Oh, and I posted a link to your… well, OTHER… you know, on my blog.

    Oops. I probably shouldn’t have said that, here.

    I saw your post the other day. Thanks for the free publicity, Page! The more the merrier!

    And it’s good to be back on speaking terms with my blog. She treats me better than I deserve. I’m really lucky to have her in my life.

  3. […] think I need to stop writing about relationships and couples fighting. People might begin to suspect things aren’t on the up-and-up with me. Possibly related […]
