Why the Destructoid community is the greatest community of all time

I want to put babies in the entire Destructoid community.

I apologize if I have trouble communicating what I am about to tell you. I am a little extra emotional right now. And by “a little extra emotional” I mean I just started crying. It was horribly embarrassing, but I don’t care. I am so happy.

Anyway ... so ... a few minutes ago I just received this in my Inbox:

______________________________



Our dearest Chad,
We would all like to wish you a Happy Birthday and give you some birthday love so the Destructoid community, who love you dearly, would like to bestow this gift upon you for your birthday.

Make Some Wet New Friends with the SeaWorld Dolphin Interaction Program

You've always wanted to do it and now's your chance—jump in the water with SeaWorld's friendliest dolphins and interact nose-to-nose with these amazing creatures. Once you put on your wetsuit and booties you'll be ready to splash around with your new friends as you practice with them, feed them lunch and just touch their smooth glistening skin. Don't miss this wonderful, wet opportunity to fulfill a special dream for you and your family.



______________________________

At first I wasn’t sure exactly what I was reading. Is this a present? A cute picture of a dolphin? But then it hit me (with a little help from fooLiz): O. M. G. The freakin’ Destructoid community all chipped in to buy me a private swim with the dolphins at SeaWorld in San Diego.

Yeah. It’s true. It’s the greatest gift I have ever received.

I can’t thank you all enough for this. You have no idea how much this means to me. I am not sure who exactly chipped in, so I will just list all the people copied on the e-mail.

Thank you to:

I apologize if I forgot anyone. I am a little crazy right now ... ya’ know, from the crying and all.

Wow. This just made my entire life. Thanks again. If I happen to have 47 children, I swear I am naming them all after you.

I am so excited about swimming with dolphins. It is a lifelong dream come true.

And, of course, there will be pictures. Lots and lots of pictures.
