This past month brought many friend reunions--visitors to DC and meet-ups in Texas. From devouring jalapenos at my favorite outdoor bar to a lazy lake weekend, I soaked up friend fun with people who've known me since I was a teenager (going on 10+ years of friendship with some of these folks!)
One of my friends put it best, "New friends are great, but there's nothing like an old friend."
--to ask if you brought your TUMS to happy hour, because jalapenos give you heartburn
--to make queso when you're coming over, because it's a day ending in Y
--to reply to "I'll be in the shower" with "seven minutes, right?"
--to participate in many a singalong in the car
--to not bat an eye when you ask her to fix your eyebrows, just like college
--to think it's totally normal to walk into a hotel room and take your shirt off because you're hot from the car ride
--to compliment your boobs
--to ask if you want apples, when she really means Jack Daniels.
