It’s official baby. We made it. Still going strong after 4 years. Man, time flies when you’re having fun, doesn’t it? Apart from family, friends, and my love affair with ice cream sandwiches – my relationship with Netflix has officially become my longest standing significant relationship. And thank god I have a sense of humour about life, because if I didn’t, this realization may cause me to fill a bathtub with a nice cab sauv, a long straw, and drown my sorrows. But instead, I want to mark the occasion with a sentimental love letter, to my dear sweet bae, Netflix.
I don’t know what I’d do without you, baby. For the past 4 years you’ve always been there for me (well, for the most part, but I forgive you for those playback errors) and for that, I will forever be grateful.
Sometimes I feel guilty, because you give me so much for so little in return. I mean, your unconditional love and presence is unfaltering, and for what? A measly $7.99 a month? What a saint. The relationship is definitely a tad one-sided though, you’re always giving and I’m always taking. You’re enriching me culturally, showing me new things, and I’m just staring at you, wordless and mouth agape. But, somehow it just seems to work! We’re so lucky. Me especially.
And you always know what I want. When I’m feeling dangerous – a great action. Curious? A brilliant documentary. Looking for a laugh? An undiscovered, quirky comedy. In need of fireworks? You charm me with a quaint, but sincere romance. Just what I was looking for. Sometimes I think you know me better than I know myself. Though you spoil me, baby! You spoil me with choice!
You’ve seen me at my worst (hunched over an ungodly amount of Chinese food, pantless and in the wee hours of the morning) and at my best (all dolled up, fresh lipstick, just waiting for my Uber) – and through it all, the good and the bad, you’ve been my rock. No judgment, unquestioning, wholeheartedly fulfilling my yearning for entertainment at any given moment – and I want you to know how appreciative I am. Each and every day I am thankful for you, my love. You make me a better person, you broaden my horizons, and you’re the best cuddle buddy a gal could ask for. Though I do think we need to get out more.
Here’s to the next 4 years, babe! May our future be bright and full of an abundance of new, varied, and critically-acclaimed good times (perhaps involving more Seinfeld…)!
Thank you for everything, I cherish you and all that you give me.
Sincerely your boo,
