She and I became friends very quickly. We met because of Mutual Friend at a very random, impromptu gathering at my house, and somehow we became good friends.

I’m not sure how it happened.

She was the kind of friend that would take me to a Skins game for my birthday, despite the exorbitant ticket prices. I was the kind of friend that would take her to a Dave Matthews Band concert for her birthday, despite the fact that I wasn’t a fan by any means. She was the kind of friend that would receive my 1am “I’m on the road with a long way to go, so talk to me because I’m getting tired” phone call without objection. I was the kind of friend that would be ready in 15 minutes when she called at midnight saying “if we leave now, we can be at the beach by 3am,” even if we never actually went. We were the kind of friends that eventually fell out of touch.

I’m not sure how it happened.

Recently I was contacted, for the first time in a few years, by Mutual Friend. After a few catching-up emails, I asked how She is doing.

I’m not sure what’s going to happen.

  1. Well…you’re like me. People constantly popping in and out and in of our lives. My “big sister” is my brother’s former fiancee from college…the one who had an affair with my boyfriend. Yeah. It’s like that.

    It’s been happening of late as if it’s going out of style. I hope it’s just a phase.

    And you know someone who both was your brother’s fiancee and slept with your boyfriend? Christ on a cracker.

  2. Hmmmm…this post has been percolating since you commented on Velvet’s “love” post from last week, hasn’t it?

    Good luck with it!

    To a degree you’re right, but the above happened post-comment. That said, the two are partially connected, just maybe not in the way you think.

  3. What are you, Jim & Pam? Sam & Diane? Jerry & Elaine? Andy & Barney?

    Just DO IT already!!!!!!!

    For the record, Jerry and Elaine DID do it.

  4. But they should have done it again.

  5. See, Phil…I think that particular group should have stopped doing it with anyone and everyone and just stayed in their own “Domain.” Why inflict those personalities on humanity?

    So, 66′er. Sounds like you’ve got a little adventure going on. :)

  6. Oh, I-66, this is such a cute post. I like how you describe your friendship. If I were bigger than you, I’d just pick you up and squeeze you! As we both know I am not, you can rest easy.

    Thanks. I’d like to see you try!

  7. i love this sort of post. it’s just mysterious enough, and i want to see what happens!

    You know what’s awesome about your comments? They let me know to go to your blog, because you have or will soon be posting.

  8. HA! you are too funny. and you’ve figured me out already!!
