This is a post I won’t share on Facebook. It’s just between you and me. My feelings are hurt, and I feel unreasonably angry, so help me know how to handle this situation.
Studly Doright has been working in Orlando all this week and is set to return home tonight. He called last evening to give me an update, and we chatted for a few minutes before he had to meet his coworkers for dinner.
I told him I’d gotten my haircut and jokingly said, “You might mistake me for a Bob or a Tom when you get home.”
“Are you still there?” I asked.
“Yeah. I’m probably not going to like it.”
Just like that, my night felt ruined. I stammered something, trying to laugh it off, but it hurt and now I’m dreading seeing him when he arrives home tonight.
So, how would you have reacted? How do I handle his homecoming?
