It was truly wonderful to meet them. They are my first Internet-to-Real-Life friends! They are both so funny and smart and, well, genuine.
A. and I whisked them off to some nearby mountains, and we all tooled around the little mountain town of Nederland, CO. Both A. and I regretted that we weren't more familiar with the area in order to show them some really unique features of the land.
The entire time we were together A. and I kept remarking how lovely the weather was because there was no wind. I wouldn't be surprised if Shauna and Jason think we are, well, a bit off. It is entirely understandable.
Over a yummy dinner of pizza and wings, Shauna and I discovered that we both new this guy's sisters. There werea lot of, "No way!" Nut-uh," "That's crazy!" and "Really!?!"s going on.
Then, then - it turns out that A. and I bought tickets that were right behind Shauna and Jason. Out of 40,000+ thousand possible seats.
(That is them, to the right of my giant head.)
During our ride home, after we said goodbye to Shauna and Jason, A. and I chatted about how comfortable and enjoyable the day had been, how thankful we were to have met these two great folks.
Our only regret was that we didn't get to spend more time together.
