1. Twenty-three years and two strikeouts: 11:37

You just can't win them all, I guess. As warm and fuzzy as other people feel about me, there are people who would really rather not hear from me again.

I didn't hurt him as much as I hurt some other people before, who had forgiven me and come around to being one of my best friends. In another case, I don't understand what he's having such a hard time with, but oh well.
