RE: Oh how 5 years changes things..
People inflict pain upon themselves -- there's no good reason for you to help that process along. That said, it's tough to have a real feel for the situation you've described. For one thing, the line she threw at you could be taken more than one way. For another, it's likely that neither of you are the same people you were five years ago. Perhaps you've gained confidence, perhaps she's softened. You can't just continue a converstion with a five year pause. If you let her hurt your feelings that badly five years ago, that's your fault, not hers.
In any case, if you're running a race and you get lapped by your friend's little brother, he doesn't have to say a word for you to know you just got your ass handed to you.
