I have had a difficult time, over the past few years, achieving
closure of our relationship. It is time for me to seek this.
I have gone through the appropriate stages of anger, remorse,
sadness. It is now time for me to close this chapter of my life.
I am trying to recapture my life and gain a sense of identity
back. In my professional life I have done this, but my personal
life struggles. For so long I/We were "Sarah and Davey", that
it is hard to gain my own identity back. I am not worried about
my career; I will soon succeed even my wildest dreams. I am
just stunted by my personal life.
I am ready to release you from my life. I also on a weekly basis
encounter people who want to tell me about you or have a discussion
about you. I do not want to deal with this anymore. I do have
a proposal on how to handle this I am ready to no longer be
forced to deal with your presence. As to how to deal with it,
I propose the following:
1. I've heard you have an apartment on the
West side. You need to move out of the West side of Indianapolis,
this has always been my side of town, I own a house here, and
do not rent like you. I grew up here, and always want to live
here. I would prefer if you were to leave Indianapolis all together,
but I know this is more than I can ask. I do not want to risk
running into you at any store.
2. We should officially divide our friends.
Particularly Jim, Jillian, Amy, and Ed. You should write them,
thanking them for the opportunity to be their friend and explain
why you can no longer be in contact with them. I can provide
you with addresses, if you need.
3. I will stay out of Republican politics.
I promise not to get involved with any Republican politics,
unless my father runs for judge, and than I reserve the right
to work on his campaign.
4. I would like you to not have anything to
do with all things Cathedral. I feel I should have ownership
of the school since my mother works there and my brother and
sisters went there. You are more tied to Wabash. This should
be where you dedicate your alumni status. I will be involved
in Cathedral. When the time of reunions comes up, I am willing
to say that you can have the reunions ending in "0" years and
I will take the"5" years. So you can have 10 years and I will
take 25 years.
5. I will avoid Wabash contacts. The few guys
from the house I still speak to on a rare basis, I will not.
I will also discourage any male offspring I have from attending
I know some of these things seem a bit harsh, but I feel they
are for the best. I do not ever really wish to see you again.
I know that this will of course happen beyond my control, but
I think we should do our best to avoid what we can.
It is my sincere hope that you understand, and do take the time
to respond. This is my last request of you.
May 31, 2005
Thanks for your letter. We broke up 3 years ago. Knowing that
and taking into consideration you believe me to be a cold, career
focused, ego-maniac, what on earth makes you think I would take
the time to think about you or agree to your proposal? But since
I clearly have taken the time to respond, please take a moment
to review some comments and counterproposals I have crafted.
1. First, I will have to resist the burning
urge to move RIGHT NEXT DOOR TO YOU. After that deep desire
subsides, I will vacate the Westside and return to my roots:
The Snooty Northside, as you used to call it. However, since
I was born on the Northside and I have Northside in my veins
you must abdicate all ties to the North. This includes: Living
on the Northside, living on the Northeastside, walking down
North Street, being a fan of the Dallas Stars (formerly the
Minnesota North Stars), weari ng North Face apparel or telling
your children that Santa lives at the North Pole.
1 (B). I was born in Indianapolis before you
were so I should really get to determine who stays and who goes.
In my benevolence I will let you exist here only within the
St. Michael's Parish boundary (MLK Dr. to High School Rd. and
56th Street to 10th St.) We will call this the SarahZone. This
should be acceptable for you as your family lives across the
street and there is a gas station, grocery, convenience store,
your place of employment and a fire station. Exceptions can
be made with my expressed written consent. You will be required
to display a large tag in your windshield giving you permission
to travel beyond the SarahZone.
2. I haven't talked to your friends since we
broke up. I think they got the message. However since we apparently
are still in fourth grade, please have your friends meet me
by the playground at recess so that I can tell them they have
big fat heads and they aren't my friends anymore. Do you agree?
_______Yes ________No ________Maybe
2 (B). One of the few times you let us do something
fun, we visited some of my family friends on Geist. It was about
eight years ago. We enjoyed their boat and home for several
hours during a pre-500 party. Please jot them a note saying
you are going to forget that ever happened. Please also offer
to reimburse them for the boat gas, pool chlorine, air conditioning
Freon, Dr. Pepper and anything else you consumed while you were
there. I don't have their address anymore, you can look it up.
3. Please let me know when your father runs
for anything. I'm going to run against him.
3 (B). Thanks for staying out of Republican
politics. Your heavyweight presence in the party will be sorely
missed. I am very involved in ice hockey. I play recreationally
and coach a youth team in the winter. I would prefer it if you
could stop being involved in all things related to ice and ice
hockey . You can use those instant first aid coldpaks to cool
your drinks from now on. Also, my parents have been very involved
with the Indianapolis 500 Festival for nearly 20 years. The
month of May is really a big month for us. While I am not able
to honor your request of moving out of Indianapolis, I would
ask that you just leave town during May. With 250,000 fans going
to the race and 35,000 runners in the Mini-Marathon, I don't
want to run the risk of bumping into you. I know your birthday
is in May, but man, I just don't care.
4. Christ, I don't have the energy for this
5. If any of my friends from Wabash actually
still talk to you, they are fucking fired as friends.
5 (B). I'm not going to tell my kids anything
about you. But speaking of kids, it would be okay with me if
my son was a crack addict, just as long as he got your kids
hooked on it and became their dealer.
In closing, I will never make decisions about my life or my
family based on whether I might run into you at the store. I
am now convinced that if we ever do bump into each other, you
will spontaneously combust. I wish you the best of luck find
a spouse. Seriously. It won't be easy to find a person who is
willing to spend the rest of his life raising children and making
decisions based on your crazy-ass proposal to an ex-boyfriend
and your inability to act like a rational human being.
