Her life is a soap opera, has been all year, she says. I offer comfort: "Everyone has soap opera years." She responds, "Yeah, but I try to live so my life doesn't become one."

I feel slapped--of course she knows of my soap opera years with my ex-husband. I just say, "Well, nobody intends their life to become a soap opera." I almost wish I hadn't called her; I have enough trouble banishing memories of past mistakes and focusing on the good present. But maybe I'm getting all emotional for nothing and she wasn't thinking of my dramas at all.
