A friend of mine has dropped out of my sight. I spoke to him one day, the next he was just gone. All my avenues of communication get no response. All inquires into his whereabouts draws blanks.
On the one hand, he's done this before. On the other, we didn't really know each other very well at the time.
I miss him. I miss knowing that he could, at any time, walk quietly up to my cube, trying to startle me. I miss sending him a 'good morning', even tho it only rarely got a response. I miss giving him a lunch call, even though we hadn't actually managed to do lunch together for about two months. He said 'call anyway', so I did. If nothing else, it meant we would chat for a bit, no matter how busy either of us was.
That's all gone now, and I don't know why.
And here I am, feeling like a have a cold coming on.
