 Wishing to be friends is quick work, but friendship is a slow ripening fruit. – Aristotle

Hey! How’ve you been? I got busy last week and we didn’t get to talk, but here we are now over coffee so let’s get to it.

I’ll admit right out of the gate that this might be a little weird because I should be asking about you and certainly not spending all my time talking about another friend. Kind of rude, I know. But I just have to. Not that there’s anything wrong with you…there’s not!

I promise, we’ll get back to you soon.

So, I have this friend who I met on Facebook. I know. Some people think the ones you meet on FB are nothing resembling “real” friends. I agree on some level. I’m not interested in taking all my FB friendships to the offline world, but that’s OK—and I think many of my FB friends would say the same. No offense, taken or intended. We’re all adults here.

But occasionally you’ll happen upon an avatar or picture or some words in a post that flip your familiarity switch. You know the one, right? The one that gives you that “seems like I’ve known you forever” feeling. That feeling of crawling into your bed after you’ve been away for a long time—diving into your worn sheets and rolling around on the mattress divots that cup all your body bumps.

Yeah, that kind of feeling.

Over Coffee

This week I’m going to start a new featured blog post called “Over Coffee.” I came across this format on a couple other bloggers’ sites. And as hard as this may be to believe, I didn’t add their pages to my Safari reading list or bookmarks. If you read my post last week you understand the significance of that little oversight…maybe there’s hope for me yet. Unfortunately that means I can’t give those bloggers their due credit. Just know I’m not claiming any originality for this one.

I plan to share this kind of post periodically, mostly on those weeks when I’m:

  1. Not jazzed about writing anything in particular
  2. Struggling for just the right thing to write about
  3. Procrastinating writing the post I really want to write but am too chicken

This week’s “Over Coffee” is brought to you by number three. More on that below.

Think of these posts as a casual conversation, one you and I would have over coffee. You know, just shooting the shit about our lives and what’s been going on.

I’m personally drawn to this type of post because it feels incredibly intimate to me. I’d never visited the other bloggers’ sites before, but after reading just one post I felt like I knew them. Hopefully, you’ll get the same sense from me.
