The ex unblocked me from his email. Henceforth getting my email of apology. He wrote back, more rational. Long and drawn out, but two things stuck:
1) He's been kissing the whole of Joburg.
2) He said that if Small Bum ever hurt me, he'd break his neck.
Point 2) is what really hit home. Possibly the most protective thing he's ever said since our break up. In some ways, the nicest. It saddened me, for after all the hurt I've caused him by moving on, he is still willing to beat up my new boyfriend for all the right reasons, not jealousy or possessiveness.
Now I think I'm getting sick. The temperature in Johannesburg unwittingly dropped 20 degrees over the weekend, thrusting everyone into winter ever so suddenly, and nobody has climatised yet.
So my colleagues and I sit here snivveling and sneezing, wrapped in layers of clothes. It's facking cold.
