I am whole again.
This is just like the time in 6th grade (grade 6, Canadians!) when I picked and tore and bit at the wart on my thumb so much it eventually fell off, but once it was gone, I missed it. I missed the entertainment my old friend Warty brought me while the rest of the class was learning about the prime meridian [a subject on which I was already an expert].
But before long, it returned–as warts are wont to do–and I was whole again. Warty and me, just like the old days.
Now, years later, the feeling has returned. Not in regards to the wart on my thumb, though…
…but Tastespotting.com. It’s back. If Alias came back on T.V. for one last season [with Jennifer Garner and Michael Vartan both alive for the duration], I would not be as happy as I am today with the return of Tastespotting.com. If I could rewind to the time before I knew Wal-Mart™ existed, my joy would not even compare to today’s. If I could believe in Santa Claus again, I would not trade that feeling for having Tastespotting.com back in my life.
It’s like losing a $20.00 bill in last year’s winter coat and mourning its loss, but then forgetting all about it until the first frost of autumn.
What once was lost…now is found.
