A Farewell to Jack

I think we need to spend some time apart.

I really appreciate the warmth and the fun that you and your Kentucky cousin have given me time and time again. But lately...?

Lately, I've come very close to depending on you. And I don't want that. Over the years - as I've known more and more of you - I've given away a little part of myself. And I'm starting to not recognize the face in the mirror. I'm beginning to feel like a shell of something I would never become.

And even though I haven't seen your Mexican friend Jose' by himself in a while (he's usually mixed in with others), I have to stop seeing him too. And your absolutly crazy friends.

Don't get me wrong - I do enjoy your company. And we'll meet again one day. But it certainly won't be as frequently. We have different goals, you and I - I'm trying to take care of myself, and you make me not want to.

But I feel like I'm losing me. And I really liked being me.

And Jack? We like Beth as Beth, too. So don't come around again unless she calls you first. K? 'Cause we knittas will kick your ass. Word.

Yeah, Jack. Never get between a knitta and her friends. You will *not* come out on top of that one.

Hope you have a nice peaceful break from Jack!

All your "true Friends" are in your corner. If Jack or any of his other associates try to get back in your good graces, let us know, we'll help you get rid of the bastids.
