I finally heard back from my friend who disappeared on me. After much prodding. Turns out he has a kid. Like a child. Who is at least two. My mid is blown. I have no idea what is going on now. He didn't give me any details about how long he's known about said kid, when he came into existance, or anything.
So confused. I don't know. I really don't. I just needed to get the idea out of my head somewhere, so here it is.
Leave it to him to find the one thing I would not expect to be behind his behavior and throw it out there.
Jeeze. I should write a book.
