Pertinent piece of information #1: My best friend, Laura, lives in Memphis. I’m not very good at Math. Or Geography. However, according to my calculations, Memphis is about 3902394203.9 miles from where I currently reside. That is so gosh darn far. So far, in fact, that they don’t have a Dunkin Donuts. In lieu of iced coffee delights from the DD, they have what seems to be a tornado once a week. Seriously.
Pertinent piece of information #2: We really like Harry Potter. Best friends should have a handful of similar interests. Believe me, Harry Potter is not even our most pathetic shared interest. Let’s just say she may be the only person in the world who will ever understand me and the things I think are exciting – like Harry Potter.
Pertinent piece of information #3: The Harry Potter theme park at Universal Studios opened this week. Sadly, I wasn’t there. Please note that that link leads to an article detailing the fact that there was a live feed of the grand opening online. Also note that Laura texted me to say that she was actually watching said feed.
Anyway, today I sent Laura a picture of this:
A HARRY POTTER BRANDED PLANE. This is like when I was in London and I only wanted to ride the buses with the ads for Goblet of Fire. WHY WOULD YOU WANT TO RIDE ANYTHING ELSE?!
Shortly after sending it, I got an email reply from Laura.
Laura: Is this plane going to take you to Memphis? 🙂
Sarah: In the world of my dreams, yes.
In the world of my dreams I also own that plane and Laura lives next door to me.
