Another photo I happened to over look. Glad I found it.
That’s my Mel. My Melanie. The gal formerly known as The Disappointer. (I told her if she ever went the pro wrestler route, that should be her stage name.)
I took this shot at their “so long, see ya later” party. She looks happy. A bit tired. Maybe even a little sad. But she’s so purdy. So doggone purdy. I’d hoped to take a lot of photos that night. It didn’t happen. Guess I really wasn’t in the mood. But I like this one. Again, because she’s so purdy. I think the apron really brings out her eyes.
My friend made it safely to the mitten-shaped state and has even started unpacking and settling in. Women are excellent adapters. I’ve held up my end of the bargain: useless facts about Michigan. This is not to help Melanie learn. It is to help me cope. And a good way to mock something without it knowing. Mocking is really all I’ve done. The humor makes it easier to miss my friend [that is really only two states away but it feels like ten – WAH!].
“Laughter through tears is my favorite emotion.” Truvy hit the nail on the head with that one.
