I think it's obvious what happened: the virus that has been plaguing everyone's inboxes somehow got passed onto her old account, and sent out to everyone in her address book. However, for just a second, when I saw her name pop up in my inbox, I didn't think that. It actually took me moment to remember she's gone. In that split second I was just getting an email from my friend Jane, that would probably mock me, or annoy me in some way. I really liked that instant; probably because, even almost five years later, I still haven't been able to let Jane go.
Jane's number is still in my phone, even though I have changed phones numerous times. Her email is not only still in my address book, but in the "first contact friends" file. There are still times when something will happen, and I realize Jane would be the only person to truly appreciate it. I really can't believe she didn't get to meet my daughter, or her nieces, or any of the other fabulous children that are now in the lives of her friends and family. Those kids are definitely missing out, if for no other reason than she would have taught them really dirty jokes. I can't believe she missed out on Obama becoming President. She would have loved that. Oh, and the Kardashians! I know she would have been totally obsessed, all the while pretending she knew nothing.
Now I kind of wish someone would hack her account again. I would even click on the link.
