Just me and a couple "friends" of mine. They were a little tough to put my arms around, though. I almost got a paper cut. ;) ------------->
Have you ever known someone who you didn't hang out with a lot in your life, but he/she still was considered a friend and not an acquaintance? Well, I'm giving Greg a SHOUTOUT tonight because he's one of those people that I had that kind of friendship with. In my vanity, I would like to think that he thought I was irresistible from afar and was afraid to be more than a friend, blahblahblah, but seriously, he really was one of the nicest guys I knew. He is now happily married, and just by chatting with him, I've never seen him happier.
I have had a few friendship experiences today. The above was one of them via FB, and I also had a great chat with my girl Carol on the phone, my girl Bree via phone, whom I have to apologize for being all defensive and testy for wanting to roll my eyes and bicker with, and my girls LuAnna and Michele. The former and I painted a room together and ran to the mall, and the latter and I went to Target and chatted all the way through there, the pho takeout, and the gas station before I dropped her at home. Just a fun day overall.
I'm so fortunate to have wonderful friends and acquaintances that have impacted me in so many ways. Trying to name them all would take a lot of page, but YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE!!!
What unexpected friendships have you had in your life? How have they impacted or changed you?

  1. You are a strange one, but I suspect it is Vampire better have yourself checked, and try not to suck blood. OK, well, just try not to cause trouble!

  2. Waiting for an update from the bloodsucker...nothing to post?
