I recently read the meme below and frankly, I beg to differ.
So, even though it was a Saturday night and my friend in NYC was likely out doing what cosmopolitan New Yorkers do on Saturday nights, I texted her the photo, with a quick note that proclaimed, "I found that ceramic Dalmatian wearing a Christmas sweater soap dispenser you've had your eye on!"
You know, so she understands I'm thinking of her.
Other acceptable phrasing (with actual real-world examples) for these touch bases includes:
"Here's that [cat in a yoga pose figurine] you've always wanted."
"Here's that [crossed tennis rackets with an inspirational saying wall decor] you've been looking for."
This has gone on back and forth for YEARS whenever the opportunity arises and it never stops being funny.
At least to us.
The 'two friends' thing is making a lot of sense,
