Remember that time we attempted to go bike riding along the ocean shore? We wanted to be right up close to the waves, but could barely move our bike as it sunk into the sand with every pedal. We fell to the ground in fits of laughter over our silly idea. I think in the future we should definitely stick to the boardwalk! LOL!
What do you mean you don’t remember that incident? Well Ellen, that’s because it never happened, but it’s just one snippit of the fun times we could have in store for us if you would just open your heart to having a new friend.
Sometimes it’s hard to trust “new friends”. I get this.
Does she really want to bike ride along the ocean shore or is she hoping to win a spot in my studio audience with a friend where she’ll act thrilled and overwhelmed when cameras pan the crowd and stop at her for a surprise seat on the stage? Is she hoping to be presented with a giant check? Does she want a trip to Disneyland for her family? A new car?
The truth is Ellen, I want none of that from you quite yet. I know what it’s like to be on your side of things. Believe it or not, I have a YouTube channel with over 100 subscribers. With every new subscriber, my star shines a little brighter.
There’s a lot of pressure that comes with the kind of fame you and I experience. That’s why I want you to look at me, not as a Crazy-Ellen-DeGeneres-Fanatic hoping to get famous and rich by being on your show…but as a peer who is already famous and rich. I want you to see me as someone who understands and can relate to what you’re experiencing.
Speaking of experiences, I hear you’re taking your show on the road to Australia! That sounds absolutely amazing, not that I would know as I’ve never been to Australia, but I think you will have a fantastic time! Is it true they have kangaroos everywhere? I believe I watched an episode of Oprah where she actually got to HOLD a Koala Bear. That would be fun. Someday I hope to have fun like that.
I hear you can expect to fly for about 14 hours to Australia…not that I expect anything from you at all, but I happen to have that kind of time to kill next week and I feel like Australia might be a really great place to finally meet in person after all these letter exchanges. And by “exchanges” I just mean “deliveries from me” and by “deliveries from me” I just mean “blog entries” but you get the picture.
Australia would be the perfect destination for our long overdo bike ride on the beach! I hope to hear from you soon. Cheers to making some really great memories down under MATE!
Your loyal friend,
