marie called to get me to come in to work early, so i'm going there as soon as i feel like leaving... but first, i need to make a decision. this will be the first time i've seen marie since her weekend with kyle... so do i ask her about it, or do i say nothing?
asking her would be the polite thing to do. it would show her that i remember what's going on in her life, and that i care... and if i could pull it off without getting bitter, jealous, or sarcastic, it would be a mental victory for me, and i bet she would notice that she's not affecting me like usual...
on the other hand, i'm not sure that i could handle hearing every detail of her weekend with kyle, especially if it went well. i got insanely jealous just hearing her mention the new pajamas and smelly lotion that she bought for the trip... and i think that hearing every detail of the trip would be a whole lot worse than that.
i guess if you don't want to hear the answer, you shouldn't ask the question... i think i won't ask. it probably won't make much difference anyway, because if she wants to talk about it, she will, regardless of whether i want to hear it.
do i think too much?

Don't Ask Don't Tell

Biggest rule of my life: "never ask a question I do not want the answer to, or am not at least prepared to deal with the answer to."

I believe that rule is sacred and it is why I am very blunt when I talk to people. It's very simple, you ask you must want to know and are able to deal.

If you don't want to deal don't ask but I doubt, as you said, that it will matter because Marie will talk about it whether you want to hear it or not. She just seems like that type of person.
