I can’t believe Mamma Dawg is at Disney World! I can’t believe she left the keys to her house where I could find them! One of these days she is gonna learn…
Where the hell did I put my beer…? Hey, you! Yes, you, with the nipple tassels! Can you go and grab me another beer? Thanks lovely!
I was thinking about back in the day, before the interwebernet (yes, there was such a time), and what avenues were available to you to meet people from different parts of the land.
For me, it was being a pen-pal. I have had a pen-pal for 18 years now. We first started writing to each other in 4th grade and continued until the availability of the internet, and then e-mailing each other. Then came the invention of cell phones, with no long distance charges, so we finally got to speak to each other more than twice a year. (Used to just be on birthdays) Then we got a little older and had money and were able to fly to see each other. All in all, we have met each other three times and now use text messaging and Facebook to keep us connected!
Here is a picture of myself and long time pen-pal June:
I still have all of the letters that she sent me and she also has all of mine. I am one day hoping to scan all of mine in and she scan hers and make a book so we can keep the memories! No doubt the letters are priceless!
All of that was to kinda mirror what Momma D said in her earlier post about friends.
Meet as many people as you possibly can, keep the ones that make YOU a better person, enjoy yourself as much as possible and smile as often as you can! It totally works!
