The end of an era

It’s official–my good friend and neighbor for the past few years has moved into her lovely new home.  No more chance meetings in the hallway or on the sidewalk near our apartment building; no more impromptu patio visits when Bartle-dog decides that’s the direction he wants to go for his walk.  The next time one of us has a family or relationship crisis, we’ll have to hop in the car and take a drive for that shoulder to cry upon.  Luckily, it will be a short drive–Melissa’s only moving a mile or so down the road.  There’s really no need for me to get all Rachael & Monica about it, right?  We’ll still get together for our tv nights–I mean, it just feels silly to yell at the tv when you’re watching alone.  Our favorite shows to watch together have been Lost, Being Human (BBC and SyFy), Sherlock, and Vampire Diaries (Damon Salvatore is HOT).

And, let’s not forget, we work in the same library.  In fact, there have been times we’ve barely crossed paths at the apartment complex but have seen each other throughout the day at work.  So, instead of looking at it as the “end of an era”, I’ll try to look at it as the beginning of a new era.  Of course, it will help a great deal if my new neighbor across the hall bears a striking resemblance to any of the following:  Joe Manganiello, Colin Farrell, or Matthew Perry!  If I can’t have one of my best friends across the hallway, I think I should have an age-appropriate hottie!

    The complex should mandate a hottie clause into the next rental agreement. It’s the least they could do!

    I agree! There should definitely be a hottie clause. And it is not the end of an era, but rather the beginning of the next evolution. And I really am just down the street.
