My first live shunning; and Sass comes out!

    Hey today I had my first in-the-flesh brush with a former friend, and I made it! I'm out of the way of my old crowd so I haven't run into any for a year and have sometimes worried that I'd lose the plot. I was lucky in that I spotted sister Spanish teacher before she saw me and so I was able to take evasive action. I'm not ready to tease anybody yet, so we passed each other on a busy path with her all flustered with two young children and me in a top mood; all sunshine and rainbows, I was looking about ninety degrees away, and the image of her jolt and bug-eyed 'it's-her-has-she-seen-me-what-do-I-do-oh-no-protect-the-children' expression is burned into my peripheral vision. Man I remember being that duped; it's that instant reaction - 'How do I handle this very awkward situation?... oh Jehovah thank you for protecting us!'

    Her husband was the most earnest of the three who disfellowshipped me. He's just learned that it's not looking good for Sass' return to the flock - I wasn't exactly wearing my meeting clothes...

    Just kidding about 'coming out'..... I was about to reveal my my whereabouts, but thought the better of pushing things; I'm not quite ready. Small steps!

    Hi Sass

    You don't really say how you felt about being shunned™, but I hope you’re ok.

    Keep the sunshine and rainbows!

    (You know that is better than what she has!)

    It's great that you are free and you don't have to worry about what those morons believe and how they like to behave towards the ex members of their group, there are much nicer ppl in the world to socialise with.

    Good first step!!! Way to go.
