So I guess I have some apologizing to do...
Two nights ago it was called to my attention that I'd been insensitive and selfish. I guess when I wrote the No New Friends post I didn't give it that much thought. A few of my friends were actually slighted by it and I cannot go ahead to repeat the conversation but apparently, as I've chosen to so publicly celebrate [sic] my new friend, I owe them a public apology.
One even went as far as to voice out the post word for word, pointing out the particular bits that offended her and how it made her feel. She also mentioned some of the comments too. She cited Enjay's comment where she said she wonders how my other friends must be feeling and Chimezie's comment where he said something about old wine was once new.
I really didn't mean to offend anybody. That I wrote what I did doesn't mean I think less of anyone. Maybe I'd just been feeling very lonely and was super excited by this new friend who lives nearby so I get to see and talk to someone often.
Oche-Eze 1 of Ihiala, I'm surprised you say I've never mentioned you on my blog. I've mentioned you more than everyone put together but never with your real name because I know how much you value privacy. Don't doubt me Nne m. E nwena iwe biko.
I constantly refer to you and your boo as my family, my sanctuary, my comfort zone. I've severally referred to you as my sister, on this same blog. I've posted about stuff we've done together and places we've been to. You and I have got mad history and nothing, not even new friends can change any of that.
My apologies to friends, old and new, who were offended.
Blog readers please don't mind me. I know this might be childish but I had to appease the gods. LOL.
Have a blessed day all. I've got a day-long date. Cash-ya tommora!
