Have you ever had someone that you really cared about online that you had this almost psychic like bond with? That’s me with “Dan” (name changed to protect privacy). We’ve written collaborative stories with one another for over five years and our creativity together mesh so well that he can usually tell what I’m going to write before I even write it. And I can do so for him.
Well for a year or so he took a break from being online to catch up on his reading, gaming and work. He never told anyone and seemed to just disappear… suffice to say naturally I missed him a lot because of the bond. Last night as I was headed to sleep I got a ring on my phone from him. He said he never should have been away as long as he had and that he was back for good. That we’d have a chance to write together again tomorrow (which is today).
It made me cry tears of happiness and I was on cloud nine allowing me to have wonderful dreams that night. In the morning I was more than a little bit blissful and completed my usual daily tasks with a joyful sort of energy. However as the day neared to a close he never showed up like promised. I know I should’ve been prepared for this since he’s done this before but it…disappointed me greatly.
So to cheer myself up I decided to brew myself up a cup of “Pink Lemonade”. The sweet rose tisane with it’s refreshing scent and tartly sweet taste really did the trick to bring my smiles back. I love how similar this herbal blend is to the real thing without the added sugar. It truly is a ‘pick me up’ in a cup and I have no doubt that it would be perfect iced~.
