it’s not funny anymore

We are the only two left behind. It happened once in 2005 and it’s happening again. The team is leaving on an all-important trip and well, due to limited space, we are the ones who need to stay back.

‘Doesn’t it make you feel somewhat dispensable?’ I asked The Husband.

‘I kinda look at it as an important task, holding down the fort and all that… it doesn’t make feel disappointed one bit,’ he replied.

I thought it didn’t matter at first. That is, until I walked away from the meeting and darn it, it does affect me. I’m trying to see the sunshine in all this. I can’t right now though. It was worse when SoftSpeaker downplayed her happiness at being included.

‘Go ahead and be happy,’ I told her.

But it isn’t funny anymore.
