Near Miss

A text from a friend of mine mentions the meeting of my ex-wife with a never-was old flame from high school at the closing night of a play where a lot of people I used to hang out with were working.

I'm the star of my own life, of course, but for sure a minor player in the movies of most other peoples' lives. Still, it gives me pause, to think about the ways that circumstance brings people together.

"The good part:" his text concludes, "you didn't need to be present and make it awkward."
