Ok so I was born/raised until the age of 5 in a suburban town. During this time since as long ago as I can remember my best friend was a girl. She was lived in the house behind mine and we played all the time. We promised to get married when we grew up and even tried to kiss once but were embarrassed so we tired underwater with our eyes closed and failed.
Anyway long story short my mom died and my family moved. However right before we moved she painted a plank of wood and put her name, "I love you
", and her home phone number on it. She gave me the plank of wood and told me to keep our promise and to visit her.
Of course since I was a kid I didn't have a car or phone so I couldn't call or visit her. I had moved 3 states away and gave up trying to convince my father to drive 3 states for a kid to visit a friend. Years past I was going through my old stuff in storage and found the plank of wood hidden away. I am 22 years old now and am uncertain what to do about the plank.
Should I call the number? Would it even still work. Wouldn't it be weird and creepy for a grown man to call the parents of a girl he knew when he was 5? What do I even ask?
In all honesty this problem has really bugged me as I consider keeping promises to be extremely important to me which is why I never make them anymore. An I have no clue if she is still waiting for me or if she has moved on. I hope she moved on. Any advise?
