May 23rd, 2011: Ode to Missy!

Okay, so around November 16th, 2010 I worked for a cellular phone company and it was there that I met the most beautiful woman on the planet. Her name was Mellisa (Missy) Collins. We hit it off and became instant friends. We had nearly everything in common. Her favorite shows were Tosh.0, The Soup and Scrubs. My favorite shows are Tosh.0, The Soup and Scrubs. Her favorite character was Dr. Cox, as was mine. We ate lunch everyday with her cooking me food before coming to work. It was amazing and wonderful, but it was darkened by the fact that I knew I wouldn’t be working there for very long.

On my final day there with Missy, I didn’t tell her I was leaving, but I believe that she knew it anyway. Before we went home, her to her apartment, and me to my house, she slipped me a piece of paper. I read it when I got home and it turned out to be a list of quotes. I was at first angry, because I expected a number or at least an E-mail address. But now I am okay with it and have decided to share them with you.
