Dear Nic

Dear Nic,  

I'm sorry it's come to this.  I've been sayin' and really if you've been listening I can't tell.  I want to make myself heard loud and clear.  Nic, I don't want you to have any illusions about what I am about to say.  I am not interested in you.

Truly, our relationship has run it's course.  I may have needed you.  I may have cried when you weren't there.  This just isn't the case anymore.  I breathe easier when you are gone.  I smile bigger without you now.  You need to hear this out loud (in a sense) that you don't need to call anymore, Nic.  I haven't been picking up the phone on purpose.  Your name is on caller ID - I've got it figured out.

I'm sure, Nic, you have plenty of wonderful and meaningful relationships to attend to.  I wasn't your only girl.  I've never been jealous, that's not what this is about, far from it.  Maybe I even like gathering with your "friends".  I like them, they are good people.

Nic, I'm upset with you in particular.  I'm tired of fighting with you.  You think you are the little demon.  While it's true, you don't play fair, give it a break.   You are hanging around right now when you know, you know you're not welcome.  Am I trying to hurt your feelings?  You don't have any.  I'm telling you it's time to stop this nonsense.  Enough Already.  No more calls.  I'm not answering.  Nic, Nicotine, enough.  Don't bother.

You want my lighter?  Take it, just go.


  1. Breaking up is hard to do. But is the best thing for you dear.

  2. Clever and awesome post, S. Well done, and good for you! :)

  3. smiles..still fighting with that asshole? lol

  4. I gave Nic the boot seven weeks ago. He tried to sneak in a week ago, but there was no place for him to stay. He's persistent, I'll give him that.

  5. Congrats!! You just reminded me of my quit date, which is tomorrow.

  6. Great post! I kicked old Nic myself over a year ago but it seems nic always calls when I feel any stress.I dont reckon nic will ever stop calling me but its easier for me to not answeer anymore. Hang in there its such a good thing you are doing! Hope ya had a wonderful weekend!" Hugs"
