Kaitlin has been a friend for at least a year and especially the past 6 months or so since she got me into Friday Night Lights. It’s funny how sometimes friendships feel like they’ve been around forever even if they haven’t. Ours is like that. We talk nearly every day and do our FNL podcast weekly. We talk on the phone (well, Skype) more than really anyone else. We met from my OTH site and it has now blossomed into several more, most notably our FNL site. I’m so happy to say that being with her in person was every bit enjoyable as all of our virtual meetings. I’ll argue with anyone that friendships really can start online.
Kaitlin was on her way to Florida on vacation and I was happy to have her for a night on her way. I picked her up yesterday about 2 and we did fun stuff like pick up Emma from school, cook dinner, go to Wal-Mart and watch TV. You know? My life. I really did try to fit some tours in between our limited time but you know? Showing neighborhood after neighborhood and fast food chain after fast food chain can only provide so much entertainment. Hopefully the tour of downtown Charlotte was a tad more interesting. As expected, we (I?) most enjoyed sitting ourselves in front of the TV, watching some of our favorite shows and chatting away while on our Macs. Ah, it was so great to hear her say “TRUTH” in reply instead of just reading it.
I was happy to show her how to make sweet tea, take her to her first Bojangles and feed her enough bacon and chocolate to last a lifetime.
