My husband Mel said last weekend that he would love to meet one of this blog's most astute commenters, Lisa Raspopovich. I consider Lisa one of my best pals -- she's so witty and smart, and I can tell her anything.
There's only one problem though: I've never met her.
We got to know each other through an American expats conference and became fast friends. Time passed quickly, and a month or so ago I e-mailed her that we really must meet sometime. But we got to talking about it and decided that actually meeting face to face could ruin our beautiful relationship.
No wonder my husband gave me a funny look when I said he wouldn't be able to meet her for some time....
