We are a strange bunch. Often we say to one another “we were wasted” and by that we mean that our biggest asset, our humor, was not explored beyond the confines of our cubicles. We were fun or we had fun.
We knew how to make fun of ourselves before we laughed at anything else. We knew how to respect each other’s grounds and never make a joke that was too close to home, no joke can be funny if it’s meant to be offensive. We knew that.
We have also consoled one another, held each other’s hand at funerals, and difficult places. We have made that phone call to say “I’m here for you” and really meant it and we have driven to one another to physically be there. We have been at each other’s wedding, seen our newborns and seen our children grow. We have watched our struggles and we have celebrated our victories.
All of us have something in common, we treasure friendship. A lasting friendship is not a novelty to us rather we reinforce the concept of friendship in each other.
We are a strange bunch. We are funny and we are friends. Somehow, we manage to be both when we are together. Somehow, we manage to remain the same when we are not.
