The Topsies have company! In what is an absolutely appropriate turn of events for a tech-geek, Uber developed a relationship with one of his classmates at the virtual reality school he has attended the last couple of years. He and she became really close over this school year and began “dating” online sometime after the holidays.
I’ve watched in awe and fascination as her name came up in conversation over and over again, and he seemed to know as much about her as if she had grown up next door to him all his life. This online dating is an interesting thing because the constant conversations that are required to maintain it mean that the dating couple probably get to know each other far better, at least in some respects, than couples who live in the same town!
Anyway, this young lady lives approximately four states away, but her mom was willing and eager to drive the ten hour trek from her state to ours and bring her for a week-long visit so these two could finally meet in person. And that has been the excitement of the summer for Uber and the rest of the Topsies!
Because they have never visited NC before, we have had the most wonderful time showing them around our waterfalls, small-town shops, and mountain overlooks. As if I didn’t appreciate the beauty of our area enough, it has been incredible seeing it through the eyes of folks who usually breathe only the smoggy air of the big city.
I find that the Topsies have a talent I was unaware of until now…tour guides, extraordinaire! We have so much pride in our natural beauty here that I guess it just spills out of us as we lead our guests through the paces of mountain life.
So if you are struggling to come up with your next vacation spot, I have an inside source on a personalized tour. For the right amount of flattery, I’ll put you right at the top of the docket for the next round of official “Tours With The Topsies!!”
