My Invisible Canadian Friend


Have you ever had an invisible friend?  One you have never met before but feel like you know just by conversing over the internet almost everyday?

Well, I do.  In fact, I have many, many friends that I have met through my favorite message board:  weightwatchers.com.  I have friends from all across the United States and Canada.  Now I even have one in Poland!  


Some of my "real life" friends and family think I'm totally insane for my obsession.  Come on.  Admit it.  You're one of them.  I still love you for thinking that way.  However, I wouldn't trade the experiences and learning I have had with my "invisible" friends for anything.
I have had the opportunity of meeting several of these gals.  Some are a little strange (that just makes them more interesting) but most are fairly normal.

As I have been through this surgical ordeal, I cannot believe how many of these online friends have shown such love and care for my wellbeing.
Maybe you've noticed comments on this blog or on Facebook from them.  I have been
seriously overwhelmed by their concern...even from people who don't like me very much.  (I know that's hard to believe but it's true.  I'm very thankful to these friends.  More than they can ever know.


NOW...about this post.
Yesterday I got another care package.  This time from one of my "invisible" friends from the Weight Watchers GDT board.

Her online name is Deasmom.  Her Halloween name is MummyDearest.
Her real name is Liz.  
She is hilariously funny and always makes me laugh like a loon whenever she posts.
Best of all...she is Canadian and knows my soft spot for Canadian candy bars.
Bless her heart, she sent me this package:


With this inside:




Thanks Deas!  You are a true friend.

I'm one of those strange people you have met aren't I? I know you were secretly writing in your journal that I was spastic and acted like I had never left the house before. :P

I am so happy I got to meet Liz this last year. She is just as lovable and crazy in real life as she is on the internet. She's a hoot!

Hooray for chocolate in the mail! I'm glad you're starting to feel better, Tami.

You really should be more careful meeting strange people from the internets.

Erika said...

I agree with Nerd. You need to be careful online. Who knows what kind of freaks you could meet!

Erin said...

Yes, you definitely need to be careful who you meet IRL.

Deas is such a hoot.
