A lot of people say a lot of things.
A lot. Of People. And a lot. Of things.
They may say those things for effect, or for fun. Or even, sometimes, for nothing at all. They may say it because they think the occasions fits it, even if it's not true. Or they may say it regardless of the occasion, or its truth.
Rarely do people show it.
Well, show what it means. Back it up. Make a stand. Say that "You're a good friend, and I appreciate you," and then show that they appreciate it.
That's not to say that they're not good friends, or that they never mean what they say. Not at all.
But when someone does show it, when someone does go the extra mile...
...well, that shows something. It touches my heart, and warms me no end.
Joanna Lee did that. She went the extra mile. Knowing that I wouldn't be able to watch X Men until mid June, she decided not to watch it until then. By choice. It doesn't matter that there may be other reasons for her to hold it off, she says that I'm a part of that reasoning. And I believe her.
Because she has shown me that she deserves to be believed.
Now I know that when I make the Last Stand, I won't be standing alone.
Thank you, Jo. I appreciate it.
And that, I do mean.
