Today I ate out at Panda Express with my best friend Phillip. They had good food. Good shrimp. Good refills. (hint:Root beer, pepsi, and sprite is a good combo) Phillip is a nice guy. He’s there for you when you need him. He’s like the epitome for all guys! Except that his skin is a bit weird… And he’s got depression, insomnia, case of nosebleeds, fatigue, mood swings…. BUT REALLY HE’S GREAT! I love Phillip. What’s better is that he loves me too! But not in that gross relationship way. We’re just really good friends.
That made me think. Gee, I have such a great friend. I think everyone should have a friend. Not like 1000 “friends” on facebook, but at least just ONE real friend who talks to you in person, who understands you, who makes you feel comfortable. That bond is more important than superficial things like popularity or money. I am reminded of a Japanese folk tale about a “red string”. It ties two people together so that no matter how tangled it get salong the way, they’re still bound to meet again. Granted it IS about couples… but same thing applies for friends!
BOTTOM LINE: Treasure your friends!!
