Personally, I could go on for hours and hours about how you’ve helped make my year special, Ben. From my incredible first experience in seeing you in your element on stage during The Crucible, in the flesh, alive and in the moment – to being lucky enough to fly across my country to New York City to do just that, while getting to meet you too, as if everything else wasn’t already enough. Yes, you’re truly a bright light that will never fade out and forever a gift to creative theatre and the art realm for many people. 2016 has been unprecedented for me, literally, but by every sacrifice and every gain, it was made better by being able to fully support an artist I sincerely believe is extraordinary.
XOXO, SimplyWhishaw (who also turned ONE this month!! WOOP!! Thank you to all my amazing followers and friends!! You are appreciated. x.
You see, a friend of mine works at the post office, and told me there was a package for me so he brought it. When I got it, I saw it was the envelope I used to send Ben’s birthday present to England.
Point One being, it never reached England. It got stuck in France. That’s perfectly fine, happens sometimes, surely to packages with books (I send books quite often, and it really does happen), but what shouldn’t happen is point number two.
It was open, and empty.
Now, I can’t tell you guys it arrived, because quite obviously, the envelope has never been in England, let alone London, or Hamilton Hotel. I also don’t know where it is, because obviously someone opened the envelope (it’s been torn open) and just didn’t put it back in.
I have sort of failed you guys, because all the effort you put in it, together with me, was quite something, and I am sorry. Perhaps I should have sent it registered, but I simply couldn’t pay that.
I plan on doing something else, something small quite soon. I’ll post something somewhat later, when I thought of something. For now I can just say, ehm, sorry. You guys, and Ben, aaand.. well, I’ll feel bad over this and think of a solution. Sorry, fandom.
