well, what do you want to say to her? Do you want to rehash the issue from last year? Do you want to move on? Do you want to hang out with her more?
No, I don't really want to hang out, because I think that ship has sailed. Part of me wants to say hey, I heard this from several people, and it's not cool. So can you blame me for not being buddy-buddy anymore? The other part of me thinks it could open a can of worms, which I don't want to do.
Like someone said earlier in this thread, it wasn't a matter of her saying that the fit was better for her family....she said that the coaching was better than us, yadda yadda. That therefore is a derogatory comment toward our coaching, and when I am one of the coaches, that leaves a bitter taste in my mouth.
This is what I've crafted so far, which alludes to 'tension', but nothing specific and doesn't really address the comments. Opinions?
"I know I've exchanged pleasantries with both you and TSDad several times this year at meets and at practice if we see each other. TSDad and I even had a conversation about pictures when we were taking some at the (XYZ event). Actually, I don't really think I've seen you as much this summer as I have before, but if I've walked by you and haven't said hi, I do apologize. I guess I have felt some tension since you decided to leave (MyTeam), but I guess that happens. At the time, I did say I was sorry you felt the need to switch but I wished you the best, and I still do."
