Making Magic

Yesterday I posted Best Guy Ever's self-portrait of himself from the front of my 8-Days-After-My-Birthday card and then he left some comments which he signed with his name, so I feel it would be pretty okay to just use his name now. Best Guy Ever is known as Scott. Scott... meet everybody.

And now that we have that all taken care of, I wanted to share just a tiny piece of what it has been like for me to have found a great guy like Scott, without really knowing how to act when you have a great guy. Sometimes I mess up. We try to talk about it though, because communication is good. We talk; in person and on the phone, and we email through regular email and myspace. Sometimes we do a combination of three at the same time. That's what happens when you really like someone, you just can't get enough of them.

You're the greatest human being who has ever lived. I know some people would say Gandhi, or Mother Teresa, or Jesus... but for me, it's clearly you. Those other people never would have known the words to the Monchichi song.

Love you babydoll. (Remainder of message edited to protect the innocent)

I like "babydoll". In the history of the known universe no one has ever called me babydoll, and there's something just right about that.

"When two people meet and fall in love, there's a sudden rush of magic. Magic is just naturally present then. We tend to feed on that gratuitous magic without striving to make any more. One day we wake up and find that the magic is gone. We hustle to get it back, but by then it's usually too late, we've used it up. What we have to do is work like hell at making additional magic right from the start. It's hard work, especially when it seems superfluous or redundant, but if we can remember to do it, we greatly improve our chances of making love stay."
-Tom Robbins,Still Life with Woodpecker

I don't know much about magic since I've never had any before, but I promise not to eat it all up without figuring out where to get more first.

I love you.

Let's keep makin' magic and I love you.

So now we work on the making magic part. We're not really sure how to do it, but I think we do a good job of trying. We have our own Mission Statement, we apply teamwork to the things we do, we have a mini-vacation planned together for next week (with pictures, I PROMISE), and we send messages like this:

You are the greatest combination of skin, bones, blood, guts, and all that other stuff, that has been put together into one person, ever.

I may frame this and hang it on my wall.
I'm glad the people who told me my standards were too high were wrong. I didn't want much really, all I wanted was someone who thought I was amazing, and who I could think was amazing in return. And here he is.

And next time I PROMISE to have some sewing done. I mean, I do keep saying it's a craft blog after all...

Did you get this Scott guys permission to post his personal e-mails to you? That could be seen as some sort of breech of confidentiality or something. I'm not sure that is how magic is made, or maybe I'm wrong...but probably not.
