Never means 2 weeks

Project Reverb prompt: “What did you think you’d NEVER do. But you did this year. Why? What changed your mind?”

Someone told me a long time ago that never means two weeks. So I try not to say never.  I do see some things have ended but I haven’t said that I’ll never be back in touch with those folks. Just that right now it doesn’t make sense. It may not for a long time, but I take it day by day. When I need to be reminded of why ,I read saved emails and texts. But never isn’t really in there.  Just not today.

I do know that I said we’re never moving again. Nearly 10 years ago. And we are. And that first part is going to be bumpy. But we’ll get through it.  I won’t say we’ll never buy and sell a house at the same time because that’s what we did with this one and it was super stressful. I won’t say never because I’m superstitious and I think that will bring that to pass.
