Hail Male, Well Met

At a funeral today, I said “hello” to someone I haven’t seen for five years.

I’d never warmed to him.

I was a person prepared for conversation but I wasn’t in a woman’s role; I wasn’t a wife or secretary or waitress.

His approach was “Hail male, well met!” and I was not a good fit.

We turned away from each other.
