It’s funny that thing about friends. That thing when you get to a certain point in your life and you realize it’s not about how many friends you have, but more about those few friends who mean the world to you.
I’ve spoken about this before. The friends for life. The friends i can be myself around. my complete self. the friends i go out with on sunday nights. the ones whose houses i crash in on. the ones who wiis i hijack (at least until i buy my own) the ones whose leftovers i devour after i’ve done the non-eat at a stranger’s house (come on, you know you’ve done it. gone somewhere and not eaten anything and prayed like hell that the host didn’t notice). the ones i depend on when i feel like crap. and the ones i cheer up when they feel like crap (and will willingly eat my weight in cookie dough for).
They aren’t friends anymore. They are family.
and last night…after myÃ‚Â months of begging, they finally caved and took me bowling…I put my foot down. Not as much as this guy is, but still…
(what? i’m from the midwest. bowling is in our blood. like football. and cheese. Go Packers!)
and i kicked all their asses. really, i did.
i’m usually a big fan of the 80’s. not the decade…the bowling score. but last night…two strikes in the last frame! the funny thing is, i have zero form. i don’t bend my legs, i don’t do a little strut. i walk up to the lane and toss the hell out of the ball. sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t. sometimes it likes to fly over into the lane beside us. i soooo wish i was kidding.
we all had a good time. even the ones who had to be forced.
and some of us had a little bit too much of a good time. (and it was NOT because of any alcohol consumed beforehand. no. uh uh. it wasn’t)
also…for the record…i wore my jean skirt and legging outfit out in public for the first time. but, it must be added that i was wearing my uggs. and the 3/4 length legging/white sock combination was only brought out because of the required bowling footwear.
the outfit looked a lot better with these
as opposed to these
you may just have to trust me on this one…
new post up at Fabulous….what my mondays are all about.
