I still have to get up to get the princess to school and all but now the rest of the day is pretty much mine to do which what I please. I believe today will be coffee, kickboxing class, an overly long shower, lunch, and perhaps a stroll through the mall because I'm thinking Monday afternoon will be my best bet to avoid the last minute crazies that are trying to start their Christmas shopping. That theory may be off, I'll let you know tomorrow.
But now it's time to get back to the reverb11 goodness.
Day 19: Being Moved - tell us about a time this year that you were moved by the generosity of another.
There were a lot of generous moments that I was lucky to witness this year but I'm going with the one that I personally received the most generous gesture from someone that owes me nothing and really benefited in no way other that to get stuck entertaining me for a weekend.
I have talked off and on this year about my fabulous friend Blog Boy. This is the prime example of meeting someone interesting and genuine through the blogosphere and taking the time to invest in each other outside of the interwebz. It started with us having a similar sense of humor and smart-assery in common on our blogs and we actually found that we really are both the same in person and decided that was pretty cool.
I posted about our adventures, our first meet up over the summer and then my trip to annoy him on his territory this fall. The trip this fall would have never happened had he not cleared his schedule and made it possible for me to get on the plane and rock it out for a few days.
He knew shenanigans would be in total "dial it back mode" as I was newly involved with Twin and wanted to not fuck that up right away with doing my usual naughtiness and he totally respected that situation and just made it an awesome, pressure-free weekend for me. There's generosity in several layers going on with that situation and it was really truly touching and appreciated.
I'm lucky enough to have him as a real-deal friend in my life now. We talk several times a week, text frequently, and just stay in touch as I do with all of my good friends. We are doing life together now and it's pretty awesome if you ask me!
So, to Blog Boy, I say again...thank you for your generosity and just being so darn awesome!
