Any CBer could

Chatterbox: Down to Earth

Any CBer could

Any CBer could live in your neighborhood and you would never know. You could see someone on the street, unaware fo the fact that you complemented their artwork on the CB. I know this is common sense, but it's hard to fathom anyway.

I know right? like, for all I know, some random person I see at the dentist could be a CBer. so fun to think about...

The endless possibilities!  I would love to meet any of you (all of you) in person.

I know the chances are like 1/1000000, but like, how cool would it be to *accidentally* find out one of your friends was a CBer?? You're right, it really is hard to fathom, but that doesn't mean I can't hope for a coincidence someday :)

I actually do know a former (?) CBer, his name is Inari, although he hasn't been on in a lonnnng time.

We used to go to the same school, and I was, in fact, the one who introduced him to the CB.

Can't anyone ever have, like, an opposite gender friend? 

ANYWAYS NOW ANNSTON IS ALIVE AND I HAVE TO STOP IT BECAUSE IT'S LITERALLY ME X ANOTHER CLASSMATE! 

ALSO BECAUSE ONE OF MY FRIENDS HAS A CRUSH ON THE AFOREMENTIONED CLASSMATE!

ALSO BECAUSE IM CRAZY LIKE THAT! 

ehehhe!

There's nothing wrong with opposite gender friends, I've had friends who are boys since fourth/fifth grade. It really bothers me how one of my teachers thinks that any boy and girl that ever talks to each other has to be dating lol.

Ya know, there was once a time where we discussed a way we could distinguish ourselves as a CBer, like having the cricket logo somewhere on our shoes or backpacks.

Yeah! I remember at some point there was a thread where we made friendship bracelets in the colors of the sections of the CB--I still have mine.

Yes! And it's happened to me, actually- Majestic Mary is the friend of my friend and I'd met her at a birthday party before, but we had no idea for months!

That is so cool to think about! Sometimes I wonder if there is anyone I know here, and it always is fun to think that there might just be someone from my school. And meeting someone and not knowing it? That is a whole other dimension of interest! It would be so awesome to meet someone from the CB! Also, Joan, that is a great idea!

Since we're all young-ish, we can't really meet up, but what if on a Valentine's day one year when we are all adults, we organize a CB meet-up!!! 

That would be brilliant!
