Gotta Love Your Friends

In my days away from glorious and fabulous Pittsburgh PA, I had to start all over. Moving out to a new area to start college, I was the only person out of all my friends from back home that not only went away to school but alone. Most of the others either commuted to a local college or went a bit away but had a good friend go with them and room together.

Well the Dude said "Fuck it" and went on his merry way to start anew and see what adventures would come his way. Living in the dormatories I made quite a bit of "friends". I put the quotes around that word for them because they werent really that. They were more fake than anything. People who would stab you in the back just to have one night with your woman (believe me many tried). The only true friend I got out of it was my roommate whom I talked about in my post The Clarion Connection Night of Horror, moment of Reflection

While away, I didnt come home very much and lost connections with my real friends. So two years ago I came home, broken, battered, in alot of trouble, and very lost. The first thing that I did was fix me. Spent alot of time alone, didnt really let anyone know that I was back, and just took much time to myself. After that, it was time to mend those connections.

Two years later, Im back in full swing with my peeps and loving life. My one friend Butt-head (and yes, that is his actual nick name from high school, tho rarely used anymore) has an older sister who bartends at a really cool mom and pop bar that serves the best wings in western PA! So on Monday nights a few of us go there and drink and eat and just have a good time.

Well his sister, we'll call her Jessie, will usually close the bar at 2:15am but leave it open for friends and they drink till the sun comes up. The Dude can never partake because he ALWAYS has to work at the ass crack of dawn. So I leave late last night and try to catch my few hours of sleep before its time to stumble into work.

This voicemail is waiting for me when I get into my car:

Bri: "Whats up Dasher?!!!!"

Butthead(in background): "Dasher!!!!! WOOOOOOHOOOOOOO!!!!!"

Bri: Dude, it is ummmm.....7:20am, you are probably at work. We just left the bar now. Yeah thats right."

Butthead(in background): "Dasher!!! wOOOOOHOOOOOO!!!!"

Bri: "Me and Butthead, and Jessie are as drunk....wait are we?

background voices: "hell yeah!!!!"

Bri: "Oh ok, yeah we are as drunk as can be right now. Ill be awake for another 1/2 hour if you want to call. Other than that, I will be in bed (giggling). Hey butt! Here, talk to Dasher."

Butthead: "Dasher!!!!! Wooooooohoooooo!!! Whats up brother??!! Dasher?"

Bri(in background): "Dude! Its his fucking voice mail."

(they all begin laughing histerically)

Butthead: "Dashers voicemail! WoooooHoooooooo!!!! Im fucking drunk drunk drunk!!!! Irish Car Bombs WoooooHooooooo!!!!!!(thats a drink by the way, we have a tradition of doing lots of those)."

End of message.

Its great to be back home

Unwise Words of the day:

Remember, a friend will stab you in the back.

But a TRUE friend stabs you in the front."

Glad that you got the chance to hang out with them.
And yes, friendships like that are the best...the ones that are just as strong after time away. Those are the ones to hang on to.

Goodness, you gotta love the friends who leave you voicemails like that. What goofballs! Then of course you tell someone like me who wishes she could be right there on your guys' right hand there with you, but can't (I can't wait to be able to).

P.S. Irish car bombs are "the bomb!" (Pun very much intended.)

I seriously would not trade those friendships in for ANYTHING in the world. Some really great goofballs I have.


lol, I try. Honestly though, I heard it somewhere before. But love the meaning behind it.


That was the kind of voicemail you need in the morning hahaha, I have it saved on my phone now. And would be a great pleasure to have you along for the night Much luck to you with all.
