Dear @DavidArchie

davidwritingbigHey David,

Hope all is well with you. Just wanted to drop you a line to say it’s time to come back now. Ya, ya, I know it’s not 2014 yet. But this whole “being strong, keeping the candle in the window” bit is getting old. I’m a little too over it.

Selfish, you say? Sure. I totally admit that. I embrace my selfishness. I don’t listen to your music because it can help feed the poor. I listen to it for ME, moi, myself and I.

Having you around makes life more… lively… you know? Puts more oxygen in the air. Dials up the shine from the sun. Makes every day seem full of possibilities and wonder.

Believe me I wish that were not so. I wish I could just yawn and say “2014? sheesh, I wish he’d wait till 2016, I’ve got a lot on my plate.” Which I actually do. But you have a way of making all that easier to deal with. I don’t even know how. It needs to be a Masters thesis for some physics student. “David = joy squared.” Some complex formula scribbled in chalk across a board.

Yes, I know it’s awesome for you that you are where you are doing what you’re doing, yada yada yada… but this last home stretch just seems so loooooong, you know? Or maybe it’s just me. Never mind.

Have an awesome day, D.

    Bravo! I have not managed to write a postcard yet. I figure it will go about like that minus the Masters thesis.

  2. betsy says:

    Every word yes.

  3. betsy says:

    I am no longer coherent. Not that I ever was, but still.

  4. NO, IT’S NOT JUST YOU!!!!
    Has anybody figured out where the freaking “fast forward” button is on this time machine yet??

  5. TOfan says:

    Question for y’all … if you could take a magic potion to cure you of ODD, would you?

  6. MT says:

    hahaha Perfect!

    LOL Joni, if you find the button, PUSH IT! πŸ™‚

  7. Nan says:

    One thing is definitely certain – when he’s here, life is easier to deal with!

  8. sunny says:

    I think most of us hard core David fans feel the same way!!

  9. jackryan4da says:

    My sentiments exactly! LMAO

  10. rooster says:

    i am eighty,and still would push the fast forward button, lol

  11. jackryan4da says:

    And that line “David = joy squared” deserves its own bumper sticker! I think I might just do that πŸ™‚

  12. archugeezer says:

    Is this the lull before The Archuleta comes storming back? Lullapalooza. My family put me on ODD watch.

  13. Spirit says:

    Another perfectly stated, right on the money post, TOfan!
    jackryan4da……The bumper sticker is a great idea! David = joy squared says it all.

  14. davidarchiefan4life says:

    how did you read my mind! This post speaks to me – probs pretty true for most of us!! “if you could take a magic potion to cure you of ODD, would you?” have to think about that one.

    No. πŸ™‚

  15. collegemom says:

    Yep – that’s pretty much how I feel TOfan!

  16. Haroldcpim says:

    No way would I take any potion . Please push that button NOW!

  17. bleubird19 says:

    Gee … this kinda made me teary. I just wrote a postcard to David today. Started just like this one … put some fluff in between (not like the crossed out stuff here) … and ended pretty much like this one. ~sniff~

  18. Kizzi says:

    TOfan, your truth clothed with humor is always glorious and plucks at my heart strings in perfect harmony. 9 months seems so far away yet so close. ODD is more a blessing than anything else, albeit, still a guilty pleasure, so no eraser potion for sure. Your exponential joy formula made me remember SilverFox’s theory of D’s music as the “Fountain of Youth.” πŸ˜€

  19. missbianca says:

    Strike-through as an art form. Thanks for speaking for so many!

  20. refnaf says:

    Lolz TOfan> this is why I STILL have not sent him a card or postcard!!!!

    No potion for me…… I am loving this journey !!

  21. peppertara says:

    Haha, well written TOfan. Love this, you have a knack,lol. I haven’t sent David a postcard for a while but just may do that soon…I have a “David supply”. Keep it short and sweet, hopefully.
    As for an ODD potion….have a feeling it would taste bad and I wouldn’t be able to swallow it!
    Have managed to curb it a little and focus on other areas of life since David has been away but still enjoying my daily dose of this most pleasant ‘disorder’. πŸ™‚

    ” but this last home stretch just seems so loooooong, you know?”…..does it ever! So, we get through the summer – ok, I can see that going fairly quickly, it always seems to – then before you know it we are preparing for the holidays and there is never enough time then – and then we are in 2014, yippee, woohoo!!! And then 4 more months….they may be the hardest of them all….I can’t wait!!!

  23. missbianca says:

    Ever since reading your letter-within-a-letter, I have missed D about 5x more than ever since he left. I blame you. *frowny face*

    • TOfan says:

      oh nooooooo! so sorry Ms. B. ((((hugs)))) … I actually didn’t think it was possible to miss him more, tbh 😦

      • missbianca says:

        Thank you for the ((((hugs)))) and back atcha. Actually, I’d just been doing really well at managing my feelings but you, as Muldur said, “touched a nerve here. Or 50.” I’ll get back on an even keel soon. πŸ™‚

  24. Muldur says:

    Aw you touched a nerve here. Or 50. πŸ™‚
