Some days I simply cannot help but laugh out loud. Even when I feel like crap inside.
Yesterday was one of those days.
She just plain and simply makes me laugh. Who does that? Who thinks to separate a word into parts and put it all into capital letters? I don’t know why that stuck me as being so funny yesterday, but it did.
This isn’t the first time she’s left a mark on me. I feel like I’ve been grin-scarred for life.
Not only that, but she’s made a doodle out of me. I’ve never been a doodle before. I think I’m much better looking as a doodle than I am in real life. I do things that I wouldn’t normally do – as a doodle. I wear t-shirts that I would not normally wear. I make a very good patient as a doodle, though.
You see, my friend, she is an artist. The Chatter Blog writes, philosophizes, doodles, helps people, inspires people, makes us laugh (sometimes cry). She rides a bike. She loves the trails. She loves her family, she supports her friends, and she nurtures her community.
Yesterday’s comment on my post “What the hell?” was not long. It was not complex. But it lifted me out of the doldrums.
We are planning to meet this fall to ride our bikes down one of her mystical trails (I’m hoping it is not too challenging). We’ve known each other for nearly five years now – but we’ve never met. I know all about her and she clearly knows me. I’m excited to meet face to face. Our VIR TU AL friendship will become three dimensional. CO OL.
I don’t think I’ll ever look at another spear of asparagus the same way again — I’ll forever be sporting an inner grin. It will be all I can do to keep it hidden, because otherwise people will ask me what’s so funny?
And I’ll have to say – it’s the ASS PER AG US – which is only funny when you see it in writing… any you know Colleen.
