Feel Good Friday brought to you by ME!


Last week Erika asked me to host Feel Good Friday for her today, and of course I had to say yes!  I'm a little disappointed in myself for not letting you know ahead of time, but hopefully some of you will still link up.  If you're not familiar with FGF, click here to get the low down, then write your post and link of bitches!

Today my "feel good" is about something that someone else did for me a few weeks ago.

Periodically if I write a blog post which I think is amazeballs, I will link to it on my Facebook page.  I don't do that a lot because I honestly try to keep the number of family and friends who read my blog to a minimum.  As far as I know my own Mom still can't find my (as she calls it) "blah-g."  This is a good thing, because I'm not sure she would find humor in some of the things I've written.  For example, the time I posted about her getting a fart trapped in her pantyhose.

Anyfart.  My point is I have gained a few readers by posting on Facebook, and two of those people are Eric and Sarah.  Eric is a guy I graduated from high school with, who incidentally used to make fun of my friends and I.  Sarah is Eric's neighbor who friended me on Facebook after she saw me commenting on Eric's status.  Even though Sarah and Eric live in the same town as me, they are what my husband would call my "imaginary (internet) friends."  Until now.

When I posted on here about being in hospital, Sarah and Eric both immediately emailed me on Facebook to check on me.  Sarah even asked if there was anything she could do to help me.  That alone made me feel good.  But, then a week later Sarah emailed me saying she and Eric had bought me something, sort of a Get Well present.  She said she would drop it off later in the week.  That week on Thursday, I was having another bad day and ended up staying home from work.  When I finally stumbled out of bed that afternoon I found a surprise waiting for me on my porch.

What was it?  3 boxes of Keurig coffee!  My imaginary friends brought me 3 boxes of Keurig coffee!  If that doesn't make you feel good, I don't know what does!  So, thank you Eric and Sarah for the coffee and for being faithful readers (even if you never comment).

Hey, I made the blog and it wasn't for some dumb shit I did! I'm glad we could bring a smile to your face.

There, I commented. Now I'm going back into seclusion.

That's great, I love the imaginary friends. Nice to meet Eric out of seclusion. Maybe Sarah, (love that name) will join us too.

I keep finding out IRL friends that know about my blog and it honestly kind of creeps me out -- Even though my first AND last name is posted on my blog, I still don't want everyone knowing who I am

I have met some of the best people because of my "blah-g." I am glad some of your internet friends became your real friends. What a great FGF!!!

Wow, 3 boxes. That's some serious niceness going on over there. We too love the Keurig. Now it's a never ending quest to see where we can get the cheapest k-cups. Never. Ending.
