We Did It

Tea Rat: Old man, we did it, didn't we?

Rattus: Did what, old thing?

Tea Rat: We had fun. We made friends, we reached across miles, oceans, valleys and mountains, and we made someone smile, someone we never met.

Rattus. I know. But you are incorrect in one very important grammatical matter, old thing. You speak about the past.  Think about Nowhere and where it has taken us - to the PRESENT:

"WE ARE HAVING FUN.
WE HAVE FRIENDS.
WE ARE REACHING across miles, daily.
We make someone smile every day."

Tea Rat: I stand corrected. But what about the very last lament....."someone we never met?" You missed that one; is it because we cannot put that in the present tense?

Rattus: Correct. We cannot say, "We are meeting them." We can only express ourselves here in the conditional:

"Someone we would like to meet."

or in the future tense:

"Someone we will meet one day."

That is all we can hope for here. But the past is a good place to keep close in your pocket old thing, for we were fortunate to have had (which is actually the present perfect) to remember our accomplishments over a period of a most happy time.

*********

To all our friends in Nowhere, where life has paved new paths for us all, may we one day meet at that fork in the road to celebrate that Nowhere is and always will be, a part of our lives.

Missing you all, wishing you all the happiness in life.
