I’m not sure if anyone’s mentioned this since last week when Sarah wandered into the corn maze at the county fair last week, but she’s been pretty… distant lately? Maybe it’s just me, but I feel like she’s been weirdly absent from all of our lives.
On Saturday we all had plans to go to brunch and Sarah just didn’t show up. No text, no call; nothing. She just flat-out didn’t show, which is really not like her. Before she disappeared into the corn maze, she definitely would have been more around. So maybe there’s something going on with her that she’s not telling us about? I don’t know.
Yesterday I texted Sarah no less than five times and got zero response. Sure, some of them were group texts, but c’mon Sarah, are you even our friend any more? Are you mad we gave up waiting for you in front of the corn maze and eventually just left the fair? Because if you are, just say so. I’m sorry but it was nearly seven and starting to get dark and it’s as if you don’t even consider us your friends anymore.
Okay, I know I made a joke about her brother the other day that she could’ve taken the wrong way, but she laughed at the time so I thought we were cool? If she was offended she could’ve told me instead of just heading into a corn maze and straight up ghosting me.
I don’t want to read into this too much, but I sent her an Instagram of a puppy that normally would’ve garnered me an instant reply of “OMFG” but got no response. Even if she wasn’t trapped in a rural town 80 miles away where the service isn’t very good, why is she pulling away from me like this? I’m no psychic, but it feels like her change in behavior can be traced back to literally the second she wandered into that corn maze.
It’s as if she has totally gone off the grid or something.
I wish there was something I could say or do to bring Sarah back into the fold. I guess at this point it’s up to her to decide if she wants to continue being friends and has nothing to do with her being trapped in a corn maze for days on end. They say if you love something, let it go, but I just wish she could tell me what I did wrong to get this silent treatment.
