Bahati discovered Skype and called me. Besides some small talk, she had some exciting news for me.

“I am getting married soon,” she said. “We did not set a date yet, but plans are in motion.”

I congratulated her and assured her that I was very happy for her.

She then continued: “And since I lost weight, I can finally send you some bikini pictures of myself!”

Nothing beats a relationship that is based on the sound foundation of sending semi-nude pictures of yourself to a friend of the opposite gender.
