Years in the making

It seems that those things you've waited for are so often a disappointment. You've built them up for so long in your mind that there's no way the real thing could ever compare. It isn't a flaw, exactly, just unrealistic expectations.

So then what does it mean when you finally, finally, FINALLY get something you've been wanting for literally years, and you've built it up so far in your head that you had settled for your imagination being the closest you'll ever get to the real thing... What happens when you get that thing... And it's everything you'd hoped it would be?

Well, if you're me, you spend the day existing outside yourself, still in complete disbelief over what I just experienced. Just floating by, a smile that feels all too comfortable unmovable on my face. Shaking at the thought of that touch, and taking daydreaming to an entirely new level.

(Now, who wants to bet I'm making too much of this? I suppose we'll have to wait and see. For now, let's say I just had one of the best nights I've had in...far too long.)
