Today the BFF and I met at the mall to paint some pottery. Before we got down to it, we wandered the mall looking for an ATM to provide The BFF’s BF (hee!) with gas money and on the way past the painting place, I peeked in to see if Bethany would be there. Because it is only a matter of time before I run into her there. She was not. So I presumed today would not be the day.
BUT (you didn’t see that coming did you?), when I took a side trip into the restroom I recognized a certain little girl from the internets. Naturally, I looked for her other half and found myself pointing at her probably quite rudely with my mouth hanging out as my brain tried to work out the facts (the boy child was awake with a fever all night long so it took me longer than usual. maybe). Connecting the dots, I found Bethany and Annalie right behind her.
I always expected to meet up with her there someday, but not quite in that particular point in the mall.
The BFF and I decided to grab some food before painting so we did not end up enjoying the afternoon with (or near?) The Bloggers, but it was a pretty funny experience in any case.
It’s so strange what the internet has done to my life. From finding amazing advice online, to forming the deepest of friendships, to recognizing bloggers in public restrooms. Ah, how did humanity survive before the internet?
Brenda, it was very nice to meet you today, however briefly. And, Bethany, it occurs to me that I happen to have a bunch of jars of coconut oil I got for $1.70 each and I would have happily brought you one if I had only known I’d see you today.
This entry may or may not be funny. It’s hard to tell through the lack of sleep and the sore throat which is setting in.
