Road Trip to a Friend!

* * * * *
Friendship is like peeing your pants -
everyone can see it, but only you can feel the true warmth.
* * * * *

I’m way too jazzed for words right now.

I know this chicklet that lives 5 or 6 hours from me. We met on line about 4 ½ years ago, on a loss support message board. We hit it off right away and despite our geographical distance, we have been inseparable in heart and spirit ever since.

We’ve gotten together 3 times in the last 4+ years. The last time was the summer of 2004 … But not for long! Yes, in a few weeks I will be kissing my 3 men goodbye and road tripping to Naïve-No-More’s crib. We have an exciting weekend of slumber partying, scrapping, annoying Martie for sport, maybe a little cocktailing, undoubtedly some crab rangooning, and most definitely excessive goofing and laughing.

I know this isn’t as significant to most of my dear readers as it is to me, but I'm utterly geeked!

I was thinking of posting some nauseatingly affectionate poem to commemorate my wonderful friendship with her, but honestly – regardless of how much we adore each other – the following is really more “us”.

So, dear Naive, this is for you:

* * * * *

When you are sad --
I'll get drunk with you and help you plot revenge against the sorry bastard who made you sad.
When you are scared --

I will ride it out with you, and then rag on you about it every chance I get.
When you are blue --

I will try to dislodge whatever is choking you.
When you are worried --

I will tell you horrible stories about how much worse it could be until you quit whining.
When you are confused --

I will speak more slowly and use little words.
When you are sick --

Stay the hell away from me until you are well again. I don't want whatever you have.
When you fall --

I will point and laugh at your clumsy butt.

This is my oath..... I pledge it to the end.

Why, you may ask? Because you are my friend.

It sounds like the two of you have a wonderful relationship and you'll have a blast together!

Bainwen Gilrana said...

Awww! How sweet! And how exciting! I'm jealous. ;-)

Martie said...

Maybe Naive ought to get the whole bunch together! Love the poem, Clew and am looking forward to seeing you again...but I'm not to afraid of being annoyed by the two of might just be the other way around!! LOL ;)

FTS said...

Hey! I'm finally getting caught up and I see where you had an answering machine on like I did a few days ago. Great minds, or coincidence? ;)

A sour cream doughnut? I might have to break down and try one of those...

Michelle said...

You'll be hooked if you do, FTS, sour cream doughnuts are awesome.

Clew, I can't believe this is working out. You'll be here in like 3 weekends. I'm totally GEEKED too.

Numba One, Chinee Resaran, may I hep you?

Yes, a boat load of crab rangoons, please.

Okee, fie minit plee.

That's Saturday night unless we want to get our scrapbook pages all greasy on Friday night.

We'll have so much fun, I can hardly wait. Do you suppose I should tell my hubby that you're coming. :) We had the ER scare on Tuesday and I haven't seen him much since then. Isn't that terrible sounding. It'll be fun though, we'll make him watch Fried Green Tomatoes with us!


Michelle said...

PS: Nice poem and is that your very own "Frienship is like peeing your pants" quote?

Just don't jump on any trampolines when you're here.

bigwhitehat said...

Nobody comes to see me. Sniff.

Lori said... fun! Sounds like you are going to have a great time! Makes me miss my own faraway buddies...

Dionne said...

Sounds like a lot of fun!! It is amazing how no matter how long we've been married or how many kids we have we still need our girlfriends. Have a great time!!

*** said...

Sweet! Sounds like a blast! Wish I had someone like that to go off and meet up with every so often.

Rebecca said...

Awww - that's awesome that you guys really know each other in "real life". I'm envious....

Have a drink for me sistahs! ;)

Anonymous said...

Hey sounds great! I bet Martie will be pleasantly annoyed! :)

Cheryl said...

Eat lots of crab rangoon for me! Wish I really could join you! And isn't that kind of friendship just the best! Have a drink for me, too. By the time you're done having drinks for all of us, you should be having a REALLY great time. If you're not passed out.
