I'm sorry, Jim

Do you have a tv boyfriend? My mom and I were talking about this last weekend. Someone on her morning radio show was talking about her TV boyfriend, when mom was telling me this story, I instantly knew who my tv boyfriend was (and still is). Jim Halpert. I love Jim. You see Jim and I met about 2 and a half years ago when I was living in Richmond and he was living in Scranton. I knew him before anyone else did. Well, I'm sure someone else did, but no one who really mattered. I'd heard a little bit about him while I was hanging out with my other Friends, Rachael, Monica, Chandler, Joey, Ross, and Rachel (who have since left me, but we still have many fond memories of our years together). I decided to check him out and I was instantly impressed. It seemed we shared a chemistry I had not experienced before. At first I was embarassed to be the only one laughing at our jokes, but I got over that pretty quickly. I found myself trying to tell one little story about him to my friend, Trey, only to ramble on for 30 minutes about everything we'd shared the night before. It was amazing. Jim has it all. He's cute, but not in an intimidating way, he's kind, he's smart, he's funny...Jim is so dreamy. We've really been through a lot together. We've both moved and changed jobs, we've had ups and downs in our personal lives. We've gotten quite close.

Last night, I spent some time with Jim. It was a big day for him. He moved back to Scranton and I was wondering if he was finally going to work things out with this girl, Pam. (They've had some trouble lately.) I know Jim is just my tv boyfriend, he's not my real boyfriend, but my feelings for him are real...stop laughing, I'm serious, they really are. So, I was pretty upset last night when things didn't work out as I hoped they would. The chemistry was still there, but Jim and Pam could not work it out. As I sat on the bed watching in pain, unable to do anything to help, I heard Jim tell Pam that he was kind of seeing someone else and I heard myself shout, "YOU ASS HOLE!!!! SHE LIKES YOU!!!!"

So, I'm sorry Jim. I know you're doing the best you can. But, we really do need to sit down and have a heart to heart. I'm afraid we've both got our priorities mixed up...I'm wondering if we need some space...but, I cannot resist your eyes.

Oh I know! I was in agony last night watching Pam watch the other girl Karen hand Jim gum and watch her rub his back after everyone's tires were deflated by Michael. Then when he saw Pam and got out of the car to talk to her, I had hope. Real hope. He's not SEEING THAT OTHER TRAMP! That's when I felt pain. Perhaps not as deep as yours, but just as real. But, I think he was hurt when she blew it off, too. AASGLAOJSDGJADSGAS!

I understand. Sigh.

But can I tell you how much I LOVE LOVE LOVE the dynamic between Dwight and Dwight #2 (I forgot his name).
