I went by to see some friends after work whom I hadn’t seen for several weeks. I’ve been so swept up in my quasi-epic romance that I’d forgotten how much fun it is to be ridiculous with my friends. Having done or said something completely absurd, I posed my new favorite question: “Where did you people find me?” My friend, The Diva, came up with the best answer of all time. I am going to attempt to quote her as perfectly as possible. Simply put, this is my absolute favorite thing that anyone has ever said about me, period. Maybe that makes me narcissistic, but I hope you’ll agree.
“You know what you’re like? You’re like that random thing someone buys in an antique store. They get it home, and they aren’t quite sure what to do with it, so they put it in the middle of the living room. And it doesn’t really fit there, and it’s a little awkward, but every single time they walk by it, they think to themselves, ‘Wow, that was a GREAT buy.’ That’s what you’re like.”
