Good friends are hard to come by
Last night I was texting my friend Meggan and at the end of the conversation we both said it is so nice that no matter how long it has been since the last time we talked we can always pick up right where we left off. Those are the best kind of friendships. The ones that it doesn't matter how often you see each other, how often you talk, how different your lives might be, you will always be friends. When we were younger, best friends came and went. One week, so and so was your best friend and then the next week it was someone completely different. I do still have some childhood friends that I know we will always be friends, but most of the friendships I cherish the most are people I met after high school. Meggan is one of those friends. We lived together our sophomore year of college and have been friends ever since. She lives in Arkansas with her husband and little boy. No matter how many miles there are between us, no distance is too far for our friendship.
First, I should probably tell you a story from back when we lived together. One day, I did something (I have no idea what is was now) and was so proud of myself. I excitedly yelled out, "I did it! I did it!" Meggan says to me, "Good job! Do you want a medal or a cookie?" I thought about it for a minute and then said, "cookie!" Meggan looks at me with a straight face and says, "Figures fatty!!!". She said the look on my face was priceless.
And now here is a bit of our conversation last night:
Me: Thanks Bacon! I can always count on your for encouragement. Well, unless I want a cookie and you call me a fatty! Lol
Meggan: Rotfl! Consider that my form of motivational speaking! Lol. See? I've always been destined to be a therapist.
Me: Destined to help people feel self conscious about themselves! That way you can charge them to talk about their emotional damage! Haha!
Meggan: That would be genius! Why didn't I think of that sooner?? Besides... I wouldn't charge you! My advice to you is all free. Lol!
Me: Sometimes unwanted, but always free!!!
Great conversations with great friends... PRICELESS!!!
