I’m no stranger to losing friends, for a number of various reasons, and while I am not losing the friend that I am about to mention, he is moving away, and while it causes me great sadness, I know he is going to have a great time where he is going. This is a story about a man named Kyle. And while I would love to continue this in the fashion of The Stanley Parable, I will save you the hassle and get right to the point.
I’ve known Kyle since elementary school, so it’s been almost twenty-two years or so. I can’t even begin to remember how we became friends, but I am happy to say that said friendship continued through the rest of our public schooling times. We even carpooled together to high school for a year or two, and those were some interesting times. After leaving high school, as happens with a lot of friendships, we really didn’t keep up for a while, but some day, somehow, we reconnected and started hanging out again. Then about a half a year ago or so, when talking about a new season for a show on PlayerWon, he asked to be a part of it, and that leads us to where we are today.
Kyle and I haven’t always been the closest of friends, even though he is the longest I’ve ever kept a friend. But throughout the years, he has always found a way back into my life, whether through random Facebook comments on some of my posts, co-hosting a weekly show on PlayerWon, or going out for a drink to discuss our personal lives. And while I haven’t always been the most positive person to be around, he has always tried to point me back in the right direction, and get me back to where I’m supposed to be. It has been an invaluable part of my life.
Tonight is the final episode of Mistakes Were Made on my streaming channel PlayerWon in which Kyle will be here in person in the studio. It has been a blast having a co-host in person for this show, and he has made it one of the most fun and most successful shows we’ve ever run on PlayerWon. While he will continue to be a part of PlayerWon, it just won’t be the same without him here in person. I have pulled out all of the stops to make tonight’s episode the best produced show I could possibly have made, and I hope that if you only watch one episode, tonight’s will be the one.
In closing, thank you, Kyle, for being such an awesome part of my life. I know that this isn’t a permanent goodbye, but until we see each other again, don’t forget how much of an impact you’ve made on my life. Make sure that your friends down there keep you in line, and let them send you back to your home state every once in a while. Let’s do some awesome things together in the future.
