We have now caught ourselves up to yesterday. Yesterday evening I was scheduled to meet my new friend! For those of you who don't know who my new friend is, read THIS. I knew that I was going to find my new friend quite interesting, and I felt sure we would have many laughs. Let me tell you...we sure did :)
Because I think he is really nice, and because I want to respect his privacy, I'm not going to go into much detail about him. What I will tell you is that he's a very interesting GENTLEMAN (read=he has manners which is so refreshing after Lehrer), and I thoroughly enjoyed meeting him. We met for coffee, and I dare say we talked non-stop for 2-1/2 hours! I'm kindove a motor mouth, and I admit it. However, I found my friend to be so interesting I just kept asking him questions and listening to what he had to say.
Due to the fact that I found him so interesting, I wasn't really paying attention to our surroundings. At one point, my friend was trying to tell me a story that I was very interested in. I was listening intently when I realized that somewhere close to me there was a person yelling out "And Jesus said...and then Isaiah came down....and the Lord did this...and the Lord did that". My friend and I both just looked at each other and cracked up :) It wasn't like someone was preaching out on a street corner. We were in an establishment where people sit down to eat, drink, whatever. He was so freaking loud that we (while sitting right next to each other) couldn't even hear each other. We decided to move.
We talked more, AND THEN, another freak materialized. He was sitting next to us and was reading a newspaper. Then, he proceeds to get into an argument with said newspaper. Seriously. My friend and I both turned to look at him, and gaped. Obviously this poor man needs to dial back the crazy ASAP! Crazy left, and my friend and I continued to chat until we realized how late it was. We both decided it was time to head home.
I am so glad that my friend (yes, I know...he still doesn't have a name) and I decided to meet. What an interesting start to a friendship, huh? I'm just really glad that he didn't think I was an arse, and that he helped me to realize that when you put your life out on the internet people are going to read it. I mean, I knew that...but you know.....
