Minimal Regrets

Posted on Mon, Oct 24, 2016 at 4:00 AM

Reaf,

you were here for a conference last month and I agreed to show you around since you were new in town and hey, I'm a local! But I didn't realize how much I liked being around you until you were gone. Now you're back on (geographically and metaphorically) the other side of the world, and I'm thinking "I probably should have kissed you." You reminded me what organic attraction felt like. You're a rock star and a smarty-pants, a creative soul, and someone who let me drag on WAY too long about the stuff I liked. I still prefer you. I just wish you preferred me. And that you weren't a million miles away. So, you'll never read this, but my heart goes out to you for bringing some fun back into a really junky 2016. —Blue Hair and Backgrounds
