I haven't reached out to him since early February. Except for buying him the three bottles of champagne and an appetizer ($400.00) for his 40th birthday party he made for himself at a Lower East Side restaurant. No, I didn't grandstand his party. Like I told you all, I simply told the owner to bring it out with the other food and tell him quietly it was from an anonymous friend. That was it. Of course I never heard from him about it. But, again, I got some sort of stupid peace of mind that the restaurant manager said that he smiled really big and said "I know who it is." Thank God he smiled, wouldn't hate cause him to grimace!
So, four days ago, I finally left a quick voice message on his phone and wrote him a follow-up email. I just needed to. I didn't say a word about knowing that he was leaving the country this month (or next). I hope you all understand that I wrote this because I care and will always care about him and no matter where he goes; I will always remember him as the friend I loved and even as my boyfriend that I loved a tremendous amount.
Anyway (as I always say) off to meet my friend Tim who just bought a new camera in Union Square. I need to get one too. Have a great day everyone!
