Reunited and it feels...OK

Diet Coke: You’re back! Where’ve you been, kid? It’s been like 40 days or something.

Erika: It has. I gave you up for Lent, remember?

DC: Oh right. Well, anyway, I missed you! So, what are we going to do first? Huh? Huh?

E: I don’t know…I’m excited to take a sip of you, but after that, I’m not sure.

DC: I don’t get it. We’ve spent so much time apart. Why do you seem like you’re not that thrilled to see me?

E: Well, DC, it *has* been a while, and I’m…well, I’m just not the same person I was.

DC: Hold up, are you breaking up with me?

E: No, no, of course not. I mean, I like you, I just don’t like you-like you.

DC: Seriously, you’re not giving me the “let’s be friends” speech, are you?

E: Come on, DC. I really DO want to be your friend. It was good for us to take a break. I learned that maybe we’re not as good for each other as we used to be. I’ve found some other drinks that I like—peach-flavored Fresca, even water…

DC: You’re CHEATING on me? Great. You took those pictures with me yesterday. You totally led me on.

E: Look, I ‘m sorry. I really was excited to see you. But it’s just not the same. We’ll still see each other every once in a while, just not every single day like we used to. I don’t want to hurt you. Trust me. It’s not you, it’s me.

DC: Yeah, I’ve heard that one before. Whatever. Could you at least introduce me to some of your hot friends?

Meg: "Erika, that's the best post yet."

P.S. Congrats on a successful Lent! (From a girl who lasted <10 days.)

I'm in tears laughing at this! I've been away on vacation and have missed your blogs!!! I'm so excited that there are more to come - it feels to me like it does when my PEOPLE arrives in the mail - I can't wait to read it! Amazing what a little time apart can do for you and DC!!!

I was laughing out loud in my office by myself. I made all the walkers promise to go and read this! Thanks Erika :)
