acquaintance n 1. a person with whom one has been in contact but who is not a close friend
I have an acquaintance that is amazing. I want to say that I wish we were better, closer, friends just because she is so cool, but that sounds so shallow. Maybe we'll become better friends, and I can rightfully claim her as more than an acquaintance. For now, I'll have to settle and all those who are closer to this person can smirk at me.
Who is this person? Her name is Kristen and she'll be featured on The Rachael Ray Show this Wednesday. She is an artist who is talented not only with paint, but as you'll see on the show: Jelly Bellys. Amazing.
