There are some people with whom you are just not supposed to have casual relationships with.
Lisa-Lisa-Redheaded-Lisa-Whom-We-Adore is one of those people for me.
We met through a mutual friend who had been gunshot in a robbery and yes, that's the truth. I was taking care of the woman who had been shot and Lisa and her then-boyfriend had been with her right after the incident and so they came to my house when I was taking care of this woman and right away, there was this connection, even though she is sixteen years younger than I am and since then we have shared some things, Lisa-Lisa and I. As I said before, I was there when her first child was born and I also performed the marriage for her and her husband Jon on a beautiful beach at sunset. We don't get to see each other as often as we'd like but that doesn't matter. Not one damn bit.
When she and her husband and two friends came by today, Lisa and Michelle, one of the friends and a woman whom I also adore were walking around outside to see the chickens and the bamboo and we heard a screeching of tires and then a definite collision.
"That can't be good," I said, and we immediately started walking towards where we'd heard the sound and yes, there had been a wreck down at the intersection a half block from where I live and there were already people there on phones and my neighbors were walking out of their houses too to go and see what had happened and I went over to where a woman was still in one of the cars and there you go.
Another life-changing event, right there, and Lisa was with me.
The woman, I think is okay. The airbags had deployed and she was definitely in shock and I stroked her arm and talked to her and Michelle reassured her that all was well, everything was going to be fine and there was no blood at all and I kept talking to the woman and the people of Lloyd kept showing up and bringing fire extinguishers and a man was directing traffic around the accident and the man who had been in the other car seemed fine and was talking on his phone. The first responders from the Lloyd volunteer fire department arrived and I let them take over and Lisa and Michelle and I walked home and we finished our tour of the yard.
And when they left, we both cried.
There are people with whom you are not supposed to have casual relationships with. You have to pay attention. You have to be grateful.
Lisa is still redheaded and she is still beautiful and today we shared another thing and I am not surprised, not shocked at all.
And I still adore her.
Yours truly...Ms. Moon
