I have been known to talk in seriously exaggerated terms. Either an experience is either THE BEST I've ever had or THE WORST I've ever experienced. I understand it's an incredibly dramatic way of expressing myself, especially when it comes to simple things such as
OMGTHIS IS THE BEST PIZZA I.HAVE.EVER.HAD.IN.ALL.MY.LIFE.LONG EXISTENCE or omg I can't believe people even put beer that foul tasting on the menu and expect people to be ok with it. Why the pizza can't simply be really good or the beer be simply I've had better is beyond me. Regardless, it's how I gauge my life experiences. Sooooooo. Deal with it.
I feel like this
overdramatic exaggerated way of life gets most annoying confusing when I am talking with people who haven't known me very long i.e. new friends/coworkers. It's come out more and more when I would talk about upcoming visits/trips with friends. Since moving to Steamboat, they've heard:
YOU GUYSSSS!!! MY BEST FRIEND FROM BREMERTON, WASHINGTON IS COMING TO VISIT THIS WEEKEND!
Then a handful of months later it was MY VERYVERYVERY BEST AND LONG TIME FRIEND FROM DENVER IS COMING TO VISIT THIS WEEKEND!
Shortly after was WE ARE GOING TO MY.BEST.FRIEND WHO MIGHT AS WELL BE MY SISTER.IN.THE.WHOLE.WORLD'S WEDDING IN MONTANA!!! AND I GET TO SEE ALL MY BESTEST FRIENDS FROM JR HIGH AND BEYOND!
A hop and a skip later MY BEST FRIEND AND MOST FAVORITE AND FUNNIEST ROOMMATE EVER IS COMING TO VISIT US IN STEAMBOAT!!!!!!@#%^!!!#@$%$&$%#%@!@!@#!!!
Fast forward a few weeks to a blissful weekend in Denver when I GOT TO SEE THE BEST FRIENDS I'VE EVER HAD WHO HAVE BEEN THERE THROUGH THICK AND THIN.
A week or so after that trip it was I CAN'T BELIEVE WE ARE THIS LUCKY: MY BEST FRIEND FROM SALT LAKE/PORTLAND IS MOVING TO STEAMBOAT FOR 4 WEEKS!!!!
And now? Now it is OMG MY BEST MOST FUNNIEST FRIEND WHO HAS BEEN THERE TO SUPPORT + PICK ME UP AND SHARE IN LIFE'S BIGGEST JOYS IS COMING TO VISIT THIS WEEKEND!!!
It's a little embarrassing and I understand it's a completely unrefined way of speaking, but I genuinely get that excited about all of these people. To me - they are all my best friend(s).
All of this to say that Jaime and her husband are planning a trip to Steamboat this weekend and I am ecstatic. Maybe the happiest I've been all month.
