First, let me say that I grew up back in the Dark Ages—before cell phones and social media. Back in the day, when a husband did the boot-scootin-boogey it used to be called ‘abandonment’. Women who had affairs with other womens’ husbands used to be called … well … I’ll just leave it there. LOL My point here is to say how things change.
Those darn kids today! They’re always changing things up! Bless their hearts. Today those youngsters call disappearing without a word: ‘ghosting’. Very fitting. You know, like Houdini. One minute they’re there and you see them; next minute you don’t!
Poof! Like a puff of smoke, he was gone. No warning or explanation given; just gone! That’s why I have affectionately nicknamed my little runaway ‘Casper’ (The Cowardly Ghost’).
You find yourself standing there and you realize that the person you lived with all those years is merely a stranger. All you can say is goodbye; I hope you find what you’re looking for.
