Running Over An Ex

Did I say running over? Oh, I meant to say ‘into’. Running into an ex…

Went riding at the river all day with my new beau. I’d been looking forward to it all week and expected it to be really relaxing and fun, which it was for about the first two hours. And then I ran into the ex…

After a couple hours of drinking and riding down the river, the rain started to come down hard so we all pulled under the bridge to let it pass. A small group of people came riding up out of nowhere, being friendly, asking if they could ride with us. I didn’t have to see his face to recognize his voice. Chills immediately ran up my legs. I ducked behind J.

You never think of how you’re going to react when you see your ex-fiance, you just know you don’t want to see him. I was amazed at how instant and hard the feeling was that I was going to be sick, lose my cool in front of everyone. Thankfully J was very understanding and asked if I wanted him to get me out of there. He didn’t even wait for my reply.

I couldn’t seem to get away from him though. They ended up riding behind us most of the way, and when we got off the bikes to cool off in the river, he and his wife were just yards away. When I got home later that day a friend of my sister’s, who happened to be riding with the ex, called to say they saw me out at the river. Damn. I thought I was invisible.

It was my first time at the river with J, and I’m a very sentimental person. Okay, so I’m a country girl at heart, and I’m sure I’ll get picked at for this entry, but I wanted our first play with nature to be drama-free, fun, and something we’d want to do again soon. But you know what? I’m not going to let it scare me. That’s MY territory damn it. And if he crosses my path again, I just may have to run over him…. ;)

I'm all about running over the ex. Plus, he was probably more paranoid than you! Probably didn't want the new wifey to see how much prettier you are than she!

You'll need a bigger vehicle to "run him over enough to count..

Michelle - its not what it looks like! I, I meant to tell you, really I did. It all just happened so suddenly...

Thanks Romantic and DJ. I think I'll go purchase one of those 4x4's with the ridiculously large tires to bring to the river next weekend...

Ya I would say that pretty much sucks. I hope you still had some decent memorable moments with "J" anyway.

So did you talk with the ex then or just totally ignore him?

I'm a baby, I ignored him. Saw him again this weekend, pretended I was too busy talking with my brother that I didn't see him pass by.

However, I've decided that if I see this coming weekend, I will have to speak to him. I'm entirely too old to behave like a child about this. Our break up was a really bad one, which I've never had before, so I'm a little skittish around him is all.

Maybe he should just move his arse out of town. How do you see him everywhere anyway? Mutual friends?
