We're having a party!

The Party of the First Part was at one time dating the Party of the Second Part. They broke up. They got back together. They went back and forth.

The Party of the Second Part started dating the Party of the Third Part. And lied about it to the Party of the First Part, at first. The Party of the Second Part got confused over feelings between the Party of the First Part and the Party of the Third Part but decided to stay with the Party of the Third Part.

The Party of the First Part moved away. Parties One and Three - who had known each other a long time and really weren't that surprised to be on opposite sides of yet another Party - started writing each other and sharing common interests. Parties One and Three became friends.

The Party of the First Part moved back. Parties One and Two got confused feelings again. The Party of the Second Part left the Party of the Third part and started dating the Party of the First part. Again. The Party of the First Part felt like hell because she realized that she really damaged the friendship with the Party of the Third Part. The Party of the First Part also felt like hell because she realized it would never ever work out with the Party of the Second part no matter how much Party One cared for Party Two, which was a great deal. Parties One and Two broke up. For good.

The Party of the Second Part then high-tailed it back to the Party of the Third Part, but the Party of the Third Part had moved on to her own party. And is still there. While the Party of the Second Part fought this for a while, the Party of the Second Part also found another party. And also is still there.

After quite some time and lots of conversation and apologies, the Party of the First Part and the Party of the Third Part mended the damage and became very good friends. Same goes for the Party of the Second Part and the Party of the Third Part. They became friends, and even became friends with each others partners.

There's one thing missing from this party though. The Party of the Second Part is not friends with the Party of the First Part. The Party of the Second Part still blames the Party of the First Part that the Party of the Second Part lost the Party of the Third Part. Romantically speaking.

The Party of the Second Part cannot quite believe that the Parties of the First and Third Parts are as good of friends as they are. The Party of the Third Part cannot believe that the Party of the Second Part won't cease talking about it and still blames the Party of the First Part. The Party of the First Part cannot believe that the Party of the Second Part is still stuck there.

The Partner of the Party of the Third Part cannot believe this is still going on almost a decade after all was said and done between all parties above. I have to agree with that.

I needed to get that off my chest. This is Party One, signing off.

Life is good. You always have more good days then bad days. Even though sometimes life gets ruff, you learn from the things you have went though.

Thanks, Sass - your commenet has reminded me that it's not unique. That's liberating.
