You know that one person in your life that is away from you, that you miss the most out of anyone else? Mine would be Angel Sombrutski. Few people know who she is, but for those who do, you know how much she means to me. She is the weather girl for CTV News Regina, and boy, is she something else. Not only is she beautiful beyond words, she has an enthusiasm and excitement that makes me want to learn about the weather too, and that is hard to find. You can’t buy that.
I walked by her once, in Starbucks, but once I realized it was her, I was too shocked to say anything, or get a phone number. But it was among the top three best days of my life, easily.
All the people here always ask if I’m homesick or if I’m lovesick, missing my non-existent girlfriend back home in Canada (I tell them everyday that I don’t have one, they just won’t believe me), and I always respond, ‘Nope. Only two more months, and that’s butter.’ Well, I don’t say those words exactly, because that would only make things more confusing than they already are. But there is something about missing people. There are too many people to miss and too many reasons to miss them, that if I did, I’d just be sitting in he corner crying about my disappointing situation everyday. No man is an island, baby, and I know that for a fact. I have a piece of all of you right here, right in my left back pocket, beside my snot filled hanky, and just as convenient.
This isn’t to say I don’t miss anyone, but I miss them in a way that just makes me happier. ‘Cause when I get back, it will be electric. Like fireworks. Or rootbeer floats. That good.
But man, do I ever miss Angel. If that isn’t lovesick, I don’t know what is.
