You know I love you guys, right? There’s not a day that goes by that I’m not grateful for your support and encouragement. In fact, if you were here, we’d go out for coffee.
I'd scrounge around until I found enough change in my car, and we'd waltz in like we owned the place. You’d get something caffeinated, and I’d order green tea. Then we’d sit at a cozy little table in the corner and people-watch, whilst discussing our WIPs...
But then, out of nowhere, I’d jump up and thrust my cup in the air! You, of course, would be mortified, but I wouldn’t notice. Possessed by the attitude of gratitude, I’d climb up on my stool and… serenade you.
Yeah, I went there.
Have you ever heard the chorus of “Thankful for You”? (Skip to about 00:50) I’d use my empty cup as a microphone and do my best TobyMac impression. “I’m thankful for yooooooooooooou!” Somewhere in the middle, I’d bust out my sweet, sweet dance moves—the kind only a writer can pull off—and you’d love it.
Or at least, you’d pretend to. Secretly, you’d record the whole thing on your phone and upload it to Youtube. Within a matter of days, you’d have a million hits on “Author Kills Career,” and the ad money would pour in. Before you knew it, you’d be able to quit your day job and write or read full-time!
That is how much I appreciate you. ;)
