Reconnecting with an old friend


I'm wearing my old brand of jeans..and in a twist of fate, an old friend appears out of the past...warming my heart & soul just as those jeans did.

I viewed him from the upper rafters of the arena..like the angel watching down upon her favorite mortal. I always did that in the old days..I could see the total picture better..He emerged from the back onto the ramp, draped in leather, looking in the best shape of his life.

I gasped. I recognized the walk. Tears welled up in my eyes. He shared his innermost dreams and thoughts with me in hotel bars and the interstates across america. He dreamed all his life to come to the Big Show. He proved a toughguy from the mean streets if "little italy" can get out and make it on your TV sets and thrill you. He's finally living his dream.

In that moment, I was so happy for my longtime friend. All the laughs, giggles, antics of the past surged up in my memory....I beamed... Like usual I watched intently noting the good and the bad.. knowing I'd be asked a truthful accessment of what went on in the ring.

I enjoyed every moment...watching every movement in sheer joy for my friend. The next day his deep booming voice calls me.

"So why diddnt u tell me earlier u were gonna be there?" He chided me

Even that.. his voice was like warm sticky caramel over my soul..My heart smiled..just like the old days...

"Last minute thing. I had no idea u were gonna be there. But I did like the part where you were crawling around on your hands and knees outside the ring..gave me ideas.." said I giggling

(yep, just like old times..here we go)

"Woulda been nice to see a friend from the Old Skool yanno..." His voice scolding but sincere

(ya old skool...honestly, one of the best compliments ever in their world.. but damn im just 32! Old skool..I should kick his ass for that)

"Im very happy and proud of you..I cant even convey what I feel..." Warmly I said

"Its all I ever dreamed it would be and more..so whatdidyathink?" He said...

(just like old times)

I recounted my thoughts on it.. laughed and giggled and offered sincere criticism to make him better...His voice making me smile all the time..connection right back where we last left off. No time had elaspsed altho it had...Just like slipping on those jeans...and a promise to continue the special friendship where we left off.

Of course in only the way those meatheads can do..lol

Way to go my friend..... You did it your way. You made it.

Much Love&Cookies..and a special thanks to the person that made this possible..U know who u are.

Bunny

Its good to be...ME

Seeing someone you cared about achieve success, in whatever way, makes you feel a part of something bigger than yourself. For your friend, I hope his success is always bigger than he dreamed of.

This was also an acknowledgement that you are part of his success. So, accolades to you, also.

Sweetie, You had a really good time this weekend didn't you?
I'm so glad.

"...his voice was like warm sticky caramel over my soul.." It doesn't get any better than that! I'm sure he felt the same..'cept it was pink cotton candy!

Beautiful! {=}

S'io credesse che mia risposta fosse
A persona che mai tornasse al mondo,
Questa fiamma staria senza piu scosse.
Ma perciocche giammai di questo fondo
Non torno vivo alcun, s'i'odo il vero,
Senza tema d'infamia ti rispondo
