Recipe for a Best Friend

-Have a really awful day
-Call her, upset, but be unclear on the details of the distress so that you don’t bring her down
-Consequently worry her more due to the aforementioned vagueness
-Go to therapy
-Have a really emotional session
-Walk out the door, and see her there
-With a Diet Coke, no less – she came bearing gifts!
-Give her a hug, and ask her, Why are you here?
-To which she replies, simply, I just wanted to be here for you.
-Go get a milkshake together
-Laugh a lot
-Make plans to make the Ranch dressing and crouton milkshake this weekend to force-feed the fat cat to
-Laugh even more
-Part ways
-Leave feeling better than one has in a really, really long time
-Email each other back and forth the next day while each of you are respectively at your desks, working thirty miles away from each other
-Have conversations that include, but are not limited to:
-Playing doctor – she meant it innocently, my mind was in the gutter
-Major cheer uppage must be involved, of course
-The pros and cons of landing strips
-Wild passionate sex on the first date - yay or nay?
-How crazy one’s therapist is
-Debate on whether or not to click on a diet ad online (we refrained)
-How much many things suck loads and loads of giant Bobbi chunks (the large cat)
-Tell each other constantly that we can’t control our laughter while at work
-Say we miss each other when it’s been less than 24 hours since we were graced with each other’s presence
-Say goodbye for the day with a See ya, Hot Tits
-Have her response be equally dirty (but funny)
-Go home and thank God for such a good friend.

Thanks Whit.

aw, so lovely!

Whit said...

BFF....I love you so freaking much! I can't wait until our amazing double date, ranch milkshake, and trip to that little store that will remain un-named(sp?) Do you realize that it will have been 2.5 days since we last saw each other? Long time!

My day goes by so much faster when we email....I just hope that IT doesn't pull up my emails and read them. I guess they would probably get a good chuckle though!

You have been such an amazing support to me and for that I cannot be more grateful. Thanks for always having my back.

I feel so lucky to have such a great best friend!

Love Always,

a ranch milkshake? I must say, I am mildly appalled, but yay for best friends!

jana bananas said...

Aww, how sweet. I really miss having a BF. I wish I had a BFF!

Laurie and Corey Kunz said...

Sucks that both our best friends live far away...we shall hang out.

Emily said...

My best friend lives in Vermont. I wish I could hang out with her...

Kathy with a K said... what point did you don the asian hats?! before or after milkshake? Did you see Kung Fu Panda?

Devon said...

Ello love - this is prob the easiest/best way to reach you - teehee.

Anyways - sorry for the mini break down earlier. You can read all about it on my blog and advice would be mucho appreciated.

Loves you and lets play soon - yes?

So cute! :)

Kath, lol, this pic was actually taken a couple of months ago when we were at the zoo in the asian tiger exhibit or was just the only available pic we had. And no, no Kung Fu Panda was seen, unfortunately, though I hear it's funny? Also, the Ranch milkshakes are tonight, and I'll let you know how it goes. :)

Is it weird that a ranch milkshake sounds oddly good? But only about two sips. After that, puke city. ;)

You are blessed. I wish there was a way that we could each have the kind of best friend you have in Whit. I admire that ability. You are so very lucky. Know that. I am glad that you are able to allow people into your life like that, because I think it really is the only way to truly recover from the crap we have all gone through. I wish I were as lucky. Hugs. I am glad you are doing ok now.
