Sometimes, God, or the Universe, or whatever term you prefer, gives us the exactly right people in our lives. I have many people in my life I know for sure were sent to me purposefully, One of those people is my bestie, Paula.
We have been best friends for over 20 years, and I cherish our friendship more every year. The following is an actual text conversation we had recently that captures our friendship perfectly.
Paula: Can”t talk, still on this bus.
Me: Ok call when you can. I would have responded to your Snapchat, but my hair is currently in the kitchen sink lol.
Paula: That’s funny! (laughing emoji)
Me: What’s funny is it is soaking in my “conditioner” which you know as Downy.
Paula: That is funny! That’s ok, I soak my teeth in what can also be used to clean toilets, vases, and water bottles lol.
Me: We were destined to be friends! I bought lavender scented this time. Maybe it will make me calmer?
P: Lol. I doubt it.
M: Me too lol
P: That would be ganja scented.
M: How awesome would that be??!!
P: LMAO I really like that wig.
M: Me too!
P: I may have to get my hair cut like it.
M: Or lose it all and buy a wig!
P: Or buy a wig!
P: Fake hair, fake vision, fake teeth, and the piece de resistance……Fake boobs! Add a cup bra!
M: Getting old is hell man. It ain’t for pu**ies.
P: Oh no. Not at all!
M: I feel like I should blog this entire conversation.
P: Lmao. As long as you drink a glass of wine while you do it.
M: I wasn’t aware there was any other way to blog?
P: Just double checking.
Seriously, is there another way to blog?
