Dear Improv,

I love improvI’ve been meaning to write you for a while, but I guess it’s true that we take things for granted when we shouldn’t. If I’ve never said it before, thanks for being such a big part of my life. When we met, I figured it would just be a one-time thing. A few laughs here, a few giggles there. But look at us, still going strong.

I don’t mean to get all mushy, but you opened up my life in ways I didn’t expect. You looked intriguing and interesting when I put down my money, but I had no idea how much you would change me. You knocked down many of my barriers. You made me less afraid. You took me to new places and introduced me to wonderful people. You taught me how to be in the moment. Shoot, people go to years of therapy for that and don’t have nearly as much fun as we’ve had.

Improv, what I’m trying to say is that I love you. Thanks for giving me so much and asking for so little — and everything — in return. I don’t know what I’d be without you.


P.S. I know I can be the jealous type, but I totally don’t mind if you see other people.

*In this case “me” refers to a non-Sonnjea blogger who prefers to remain anonymous.
