A kinda fun story about an AP friend who came for Ariel's wedding and why I'm ashamed

Submitted by I am Nate-Dude on Wed, 07/24/2013 - 15:31

So… Ariel got married last weekend and I got to meet an old AP friend in real life (whose user name I cannot remember or find, so we’ll call her Keri). Keri came all the way from a very far off land to see Ariel get hitched, which blows me away because airfare is so expensive and she had never met Ariel in real life. So one of my cousins and I were wakeboarding on the Wii the night before the wedding and in walks Ariel’s mom and introduces us to this girl named Keri. The introduction was rather awkward, as we were wakeboarding in our bathing suits, shirtless (up until then we were the only ones home. Yolo, right?). I was introduced by my real name, so Keri didn’t recognize me until she noticed that my Mii’s name was “Nate Dude”, and she says “wait. Your Nate Dude? From Apricot Pie?”
“Uh, Yes…” is what I said. What I was thinking was “Oh crap.” So we had a longish talk about what a little punk I was online, because I was such a punk! My gosh, I can’t believe the grief I used to put you all through. From over generalizations to over dramatizations and back to just being a plain know-it-all, I was a brat.
So I feel like I owe you all an apology. The AP community is awesome and you guys can put up with so much! So thanks for reading my stupid stuff and being my friends. You guys rock!

P.S. I’m actually pretty cool in real life. I think…. Oh, and Keri was pretty cool too. Then again, she always was.

Is Ariel from ApricotPie too? The Monthly Writer? Or was "Keri" just from here? Anyways, you wrote this in a humorous way and so I could visualize the awkwardness.

Lol, you are forgiven. And Lucy Anne-Ariel is also on Apricotpie AND I CAN'T BELIEVE SHE GOT MARRIED THAT'S AWESOME! I believe that there is a Keri on here, she's an incredible writer.

Yes, I've read Ariel's work, but I just wasn't sure if he was talking about the Ariel from Apricotpie, because he never really said so. And yes, I agree that Keri is an incredible, gifted writer! :)

Yeah, you guys have the right Ariel, and I think Keri's user name is Keri. I've been out of the loop for a long time. Thanks for reading you guys. And OMG, Ariel's married, how crazy is that?!
