Dear Diary, Today I Lost a Friend Because of a Bug. Literally.

We all have that one person in our social circle we can always confide in, share our deepest, darkest secrets with—someone who reminds us that we’re beautiful and gives us some tough love when we need it. It’s what all long-lasting friendships are made of, built upon a solid foundation of trust and compassion that ultimately stands the test of time. But what happens when that person begins to avoid you out of the blue? They no longer attend your phone calls and make excuses when you make plans to catch up. Was it something you said? Did you forget their birthday? Have they found a new best friend? In the words of Marvin Gaye, “What’s going on?Confrontation Time The best way to get to the bottom of it is to simply confront them. But when they finally agree to meet you and take a deep breath before telling you what’s been keeping them away, remember to exercise restraint and don’t lose your patience in the heat of the moment. “I don’t know how to tell you this, but you have head lice. And I simply can’t afford to catch it!” The words might sting you, shock you, offend you, embarrass you. “That’s it?” you might blurt out or think to yourself, having reflected on all kinds of terrible scenarios that could have been a more justifiable excuse for their behavior. You might get defensive and accuse them of being petty, while they point fingers and accuse you of being ignorant. Ultimately, you’d both say things you don’t mean and your friendship, as you know it, would come to a screeching halt. All because of a bug.
