    Dude, there’s something about Memphis that makes you unable to go anywhere without running into someone you know. It’s frightening. Like, I frequently run into people that I hung out with in high school. They don’t always recognize me without the pink hair and baggy jeans, though, which is helpful, especially since I would hate to introduce them to one of my grown-up friends as “the guy I smoked out with that one time.” I swear, there is something in the water. The delicious, delicious water.

    Love that (at least) two of your texting examples take place in the pooper.

    I will actually call you LUCKY on this one, because I am so, so relieved that I didn’t marry any of the losers who broke my heart back in the day that every time I go back to my home city, I walk around HOPING to god that I will run into them with my awesome husband and two gorgeous girls!

    Of course, I never do…

    So I am a little bit jealous of you here!

    Okay, while that must be awkward as hell it must be fun to be like “OH HELLO THERE, DID YOU NOTICE I’M FAMOUS AND WAS MENTIONED ON JEOPARDY.”

    Isn’t that what every girl dreams about when she is broken up with?

    No? Just me then?

    Yep, this would totally happen to me. In fact, it does. My exboyfriend, THE ONE, lives 10 minutes from me. I run into him at Walmart, at Tops, at a Bill Engvall show 45 minutes away. It sucks and I still love him. He’s married, I’m married. He broke my heart.
