My Best Friend

My best friend is in town for a week on vacation and I am bummed, I can not go out with her. Being as pregnant as I am, it is quite obvious when I go out that I am. I got to hang with her all afternoon which was awesome. We caught up, she talked to my tummy (the baby responded by kicking at her), and we laughed about all the stupid stuff we used to do together. I miss being young and stupid with her. We had some great times!

I was there for her when she got in her first car accident, when her parents got divorced, and when she graduated college. She has been there for me when I was first was diagnosed with depression, when I was fooling around with a different guy every weekend, and when I fell in love for the first time. We have been friends since we were in about the 7th grade when we had confirmation classes at church together.

She now lives in Phoenix with her boyfriend and her 6lb. Miniature Doberman Pinscher, Guiness. I remember so many nights of drunken idiocity.

There was the night I was driving back from the bar with her in the passenger seat. I didn't know how to get out of the parking lot as I had never been to that bar before and I ended up going the wrong way down a one way and panicking and hitting a curb when I realized what I was doing. We then got pulled over by the cops and I busted out a Southern accent, totally rocked and told him I didn't know the area and I was driving home b/c my friend was too drunk and he let us go! I should've had a DUI that time.

Or the time when she was dancing at a bar on a platform, fell off cause she was so drunk and cracked her kneecap in half. She still has issues with that knee sometimes.

I also recall going to the mall and walking around for hours on end on a Saturday, cause that's what we did for fun when we were 15ish.

I remember going to Windsor together, getting drunk at a foam party and driving over the border home wasted. That was bad. Lindsay kept falling asleep on me and I had to wake her up every 20 mins. cause I had no clue how to get back to her house just off of Eastern Michigan's campus. I remember the border patrol asking us if we had anything to declare and I asked him if Burger King counted. He knew we were not sober, and probably let us go cause he didn't want to have to deal with us.

There was the New Year's Eve when she and I got really hammered and our DD who swore up and down that she wouldn't drink got drunk. Lindsay had to sober up to drive us the 25 mins. home at like 6am. I was too far gone.

We have the goofy dance moves, the stories about boys, the annoying people we both avoid, the bars where the bouncers and bartenders know us, and piles and piles of pictures.

I am so happy to have her home. She is my best friend and although we have had our ups and downs, our ins and outs, and our times for crying and our times for fighting; she will always be like a sister to me. To me, even though she is so far away and I was mad at the time that she moved, I am happy for her if she is happy. She seems to be very much so. Plus I've seen pictures of her apartment complex, it looks like a hotel or a resort! Who wouldn't be happy there! 2 pools, a Jacuzzi, a fireplace by the hot tub, palm trees, sunshine, and even a gym! I am so stoked for the day that I can visit her, I am going to be the first guest in her house to sleep in their guest room/den. They are reserving that right for me, the first official guest. I love Lindsay.

And eat, boy oh boy do we eat together! My parents have invited her, me, and my roommate over for dinner on Monday night. My Mom has already said she better make enough for a small army which is true, we can all put it away! It stinks we can't go out and have a few drinks together, but we can still walk around the mall, rehash stories of bars and boys, and go through all those pictures.

As I read this, I thought of my own best friend. In fact, this could have been written about us - the adventures were VERY similar! We've been there for each other through deaths, marriages, births (she was the second person I called when my son was born and she gave him his first Dr Seuss book) and divorces. And that doesn't even take our wild and crazy days into account (did we REALLY get kicked out of the bar in San Francisco because I threw up in the men's room??? Did we really hitchhike from Miami to Ft Lauderdale to hear our old high school bud do a gig with Wild Cherry???)

But guess what...
That craziness started THIRTY-EIGHT years ago! And the good news is - she's still my best friend. In fact just a minute ago, her little web cam pic was right over there ------>

So the good news is that, although the Going Out part will change, the friendship is likely to change with it. And if you think it feels good to think of her now, JUST WAIT to see how good it feels in another twenty years or so. You've love it.

Great post - I really enjoyed this.

Yeah, I'm still [blog 1hotwahine]

well glad that you had a good time together. People like that, who you share so much with, are great to have around. Even if it's only for short periods of time.

And WOW, I finally find someone here other than myself who uses the word "stoked" hahahaha.

The Dude.
