We’ve been good friends for more than ten years. Sometimes we are so out of sync, it’s comical, with both of us going, “What?! Now hang on a second.” And sometimes we are so in sync it’s creepy 🙂
Like today: I can’t talk now, I’m making dinner (same here). And now I’m doing laundry, (no kidding 😀 I’m doing laundry now too!), I’ll call you when I’m done.
Once dinner was made and eaten and the laundry done, we had a chat. We talked for just 20 minutes. And can I say, it is such a relief to be fully understood, for even just a little while.
It has been a bumpy road for both of us lately… This about sums it up.
Friend: “It just goes on and on. I don’t understand. Oh, Sam. I’m just frustrated and so tired and really pissed off- you know what I mean?”
Me: “Yes. Yes, absolutely. I know exactly what you mean.”
Friend: “I knew you would.”
In conclusion, today was good- or more accurately, the good part of today was that I had dinner and did laundry and had a chat with my friend.
Once again, thank goodness for good food, clean things and friends who know what you’re all about. And thank goodness for cold winter nights and warm blankets and good books and fresh popcorn and movies that make me smile. And dogs. Don’t forget dogs.
