I have this friend. We'll call her Sarah.
Because, well, that's her name.
She sent me coupons in the mail the other day. They were for SlimFast and Hamburger Helper.
She's totally awesome.
I've know her for...oh...six or seven years, is it?
It's a long time, that's for sure.
So Sarah, this one's for you.
...I was sixteen and you were twenty? Man, was that ever a long time ago. (Sorry to broadcast your age like that. I hope you'll forgive me.)
...your car had a flat and I drove you home after we both got off work? We went rollerblading and watched The Mask of Zorro. I had never seen it, but I still love it.
...you bought a new house and I borrowed you room fans while you painted?
...you bought a new house again and I borrowed you room fans again?
...I helped you tear up your kitchen.
...and ripped up old carpet? I was sore for days.
...you had your first baby?
...you had your second baby?
...you had your third baby? Man, was that ever a funny story.
...we had water-drinking contests?
...we made rubber-band balls at work?
...we made treasure hunts?
...we would go shopping at Target for "work clothes" and come out with makeup and gum? (Maybe that was just me.)
...we tried to push a cart of coin bags into the vault and they all fell on the floor? That was the best day ever.
...we had scrapbooking parties?
...we did TaeBo in your living room?
So many great memories. I've been so blessed to have you for a friend all these years!
Thanks for everything!
If you think this Sarah friend of mine sounds totally awesome you can follow her on her blog here. She is, after all, the one who inspired me to start blogging in the first place.
