I was in xAP's (then) city for a course. It was his birthday, I was about 3 months NC and I knew he was moving away in a couple of months so it was my last chance to see him.
The course was 1.5 blocks from his office. In fact, I could see it out of the window, taunting me all day!
It was a beautiful day out, I recall, just like today.
Sometimes it is easy to forget how far we have actually come because there are still hard days, and still things we need to work on.
I remember posting to the board as I left the course, walked in the opposite direction and went to meet a girlfreind for a drink, essentially "walking away from him" for the last time.
It was really, really hard.
Today, while I am aware it is his birthday (we were friends fro 10 years before the 2 year A) and I do miss him as a friend, I am really Ok without wishing him a happy birthday.
He's not my friend now. He doesn't get a happy birthday from me.
