South African newspaper the Cape Times recently launched a clever advertising campaign that went viral, transforming iconic photographs into modern day “selfies.” Famous events are manipulated to appear to be taken at arm’s length, causing us to feel even more in the middle of the action. [via]
It’s been months since you and I have exchanged words, but I’m almost positive there were stolen glances the last time we occupied the same room. No, I didn’t use your birthday as a segue to break the silence, but I really just wanted to wish you a happy birthday. To be honest, you rarely cross my mind, and yet I remembered that yesterday in particular was your day.
I didn’t realize that I was waiting for a reply until I noticed that you received my message. It’s not that I need you to acknowledge me or anything, but somehow I feel kind of empty and maybe a little lonely knowing that you saw my words and decided to ignore them. Perhaps I’m a fool for thinking that we could be civil, but then I have to remind myself that it was you who first chose to sever the ties of our friendship. I guess not enough time has passed for us to exchange pleasantries.
"And I will swallow my pride, you’re the one that I
love and I’m saying goodbye.”
