My 5th Rez day couldn’t have started better if I had previously written it as a movie script… But if I had, it would have read like this:
Yes. HE ACTUALLY WROTE A SONG FOR ME!!!! AND THEN, HE SANG IT!!!! It has to be one of the MOST genuinely heartfelt things that ANYONE has EVER done for me in Second Life. Hell, I’ve never had a song written for me in ANY LIFE! Have you melted yet? I couldn’t stop as I heard the lyrics leave his lips:
He later sent me the sound file as over email, which I’ve listened to countless times. I wish I could play it for you but he feels it isn’t quite ready for prime time yet, so it will have to wait.
So, back to what happened. As you can clearly see, and most likely imagine, my ability to say anything even remotely interesting or unaccompanied by a long train of exclamation marks had hopelessly evaporated by this point…
He turns to Jelly? You may as well pour me into a bowl right about now. So, I’m finally coming down from the steep heights of giddiness, and, now I’m thinking… this is SOLID GOLD blogging material. I can’t keep this to myself! Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know what you’re thinking… how self-centered am I? Hey, it’s my Rez day and I’ll shout about it if I want to! This kind of stuff doesn’t happen every day you know! So, being the natural-born literary exhibitionist that I am, I artfully, if not so subtly, turn the conversation to the topic of sharing this particular gesture with the world at large (aka You):
Becky dutifully hands out the tissues…
So that’s how my 5th Rez Day started. Then, after I mopped myself off the floor and regained my solid form, we spent the rest of the day together, visiting Calas, wandering the woods all morning, chatting away about everything and nothing in log cabins all afternoon, lounging on a boat ride, and capping off the evening with a dance and party at the Club… etcetera… etcetera… etcetera.
It was easily, hands-down, no-contest, the very, very, very BEST REZ DAY EVER!!!
So, I’d like to say thank you, thank you, a million times thank you to Harvey for your gesture, for making me feel so special, so cared for and so cherished!
Truth be told, hand on heart, it has to be one of the best days I’ve experienced in SL!
