Our first line this week is:
“Never burn a bridge you could push them off later.”
Sam could not believe Joe had just said that.
‘Why on earth would I want to push someone off a bridge?’
‘I’ve watched you offer umpteen olive branches and try to build bridges, in the emotional sense of course, then seen you crumple when the person concerned beats you with it or sets a virtual match to it. Now you need to think about reverse tactics.’
‘How so Sherlock?’ she teased.
‘Let them build it. Let them come to you. It will take time, years maybe, but eventually their curiosity will get the better of them and they will want to make sure they’re not missing out on anything. It’s typical of human nature.’
Sam thought about it. It was an interesting theory, and she had actually long given up on the hope of any reconciliation.
‘OK. I’ll give it a go.’
She broke into the grin he so loved.
‘Do I get first push then?’ she asked.
‘Of course! And I’ll be right beside you to watch their surprise!’
