A little over a year ago, life was strange and taking unexpected turns as usual. I was attending a single's ward, and had just gotten through one of the most bizarre dating experiences of my entire life (which should only be anticipated when attending a single's ward). For the sake of anyone who happens to read this post, I'll leave out the details and just sum it up by saying that the situation involved really awkward poems posted online, very strange letters received in the mail, and a complete misunderstanding regarding the word "repulsive." I still deny using in the manner that I was accused of, but I digress.
Shortly after getting through these puzzling events, on a beautiful Sunday afternoon in the summer, I received a phone call. On the other line was a girl named Tessa. She was very giggly, which, in turn, made me giggly. Which is not something I tend to be very often. I knew her from my ward and also from the dance floor at my birthday party about six months prior to this phone call. She really owns on a dance floor. This was something I admired about her, along with her endearingly petite size and the way she pulled off really short hair.
It wasn't long before I was invited over to Tessa's house to discuss these strange events, along with watching girly entertainment and filling our bodies with chocolate and other refined sugars. All it took was a few hours of conversation for us to realize that, yes, we were on the same brain wave. And this is about when we became best friends.
I don't really need a reason to write a blog post about one of the most wonderful friends I've ever had in my whole life. She's a lovely person, so why not? But what prompted me to write this today is because this dear friend of mine is moving away! Out of state! To the land of Idaho. The good news is that she's doing this with her husband, who deserves her entirely, and who she loves dearly. I am very happy that she found such an upstanding man to be with, I'm just sad she has to go.
Don't get me wrong, I plan on being friends with this lovely lady for my entire life! And I know Marcus will take good care of her. But I'll miss her dearly.
Thanks for your friendship, Little Tessa! Please visit. I love you.
