Michelle was just here, wanted to give me a hug. She said she felt bad, not seeing me for so long, because she used to run into me all the time. Well, she thought she did, lol. Love her.
She wanted to catch up, before the big gathering, because she was afraid that because it's been so long since we talked to her, things might be awkward. That, and she didn't want to go to Tim's colonoscopy any more than he did.
Told her that I was happy to see her, and I do always love hugs, but I'm not going to be at the gathering [That's ok, though, there are more important things to do. In my mind, at least]. She wanted to know why I wasn't going to be there, and I told her I was going to be in Missouri. Of course, she wanted to know what was going on down there, that I would be going. So I told her. Luckily, I had the page up, and could show her right away. She was fine. Wanted to know where I'd met him. I told her. She shrugged, a little, at my blushy-face, and said it was awesome.
Wanted to know where in Missouri I was going, because she lived there for a while. She's part of that Jehovah branch of the family that I talk about. Some of them still live down there - one cousin in northern Missouri, Mandy - Michelle's sister. Their parents live in Columbus, Kansas now, but they've migrated all over. She's been to Springfield - she said it was gorgeous country. I'm sure I'll agree.
She thinks we need to go to Eureka Springs. Said "It's, like, Marriage Central." She asked that I do her a favor, if we do go. I said, "Get married?" She laughed. Said that she needs to meet him before she can tell me that. What she really wants is for me to check out the bathhouse. She said they send out bubbles, to lure people inside. I love beeing lured inside of things, I want to go now.
She's going to see me at Thanksgiving. I told her I would have a guest, and she was pleased, and laughed. Said we're going to need an extra Kiddie Table, because she's bringing two extra children, and I'm bringing someone.. It will be great. I can't wait for that, too. Seems like I can't wait for a lot of things, lately.
She was walking out the door, and stopped to look at Barnabus. She talked to him a little, and he talked back to her, in his own way. She watched him jump to the top level..
Meesh: "OH MY! You've got a big tail! What sort of RAT are you?!"
Me: "Uh, a rat."
Meesh: "OH! [laughs uncontrollably]"
I love Michelle.
What things can you hardly wait for?
