Annie is coming to oodles of funch. She asked if she could and the truth is that I cannot tell her no.
Not only does she know where my skeletons are hidden, she can tell you a terrible secret about each of the bones that make them up.
This is how I feel about Annie...America - Sister Golden Hair (live). It's always reminded me of her from the first time I heard it way back when. ( No, I am not gay.)
As friends go, I've not always been a good friend. I have a tendency to drop from sight for a few years at a time. Then I show back up as if I have never been gone. As if I have not ignored or neglected my obligation to her. Yet she welcomes me. I have schemed. I have coveted. I have behaved badly.
I expect galloping amounts of loyalty. Sympathy when I want it. Warnings that I do not bother to listen to, but appreciate none the less. She says "I told you so..." but gives me total absolution.
It is a friendship that has been more giving to me than it has ever been to her. What can I say? I entered our friendship as a spoiled rotten brat and I have remained so. Meanwhile Annie has matured into a wonderful person that all of you will like.
In the old days... the wonderful, but very bad old days...Annie would have been sitting in jail with me saying "Damn, we fucked up!" Today, Annie would be bailing me out and saying "Have you lost your fucking mind?" after she gave me a hug. She is exactly the type of friend that I require. I am accepted... including my many faults.
Anyway, she is coming to oodles of funch. I feel nervous for no good reason. Mostly because I want everyone to like her. That's just silly because you have all been so good to me... I have no reason to think that you would be any less kind to Annie.
Yikes. I wonder what name she will use. Geez... I feel like I need to clean my house now... company's coming!
Do any of you recall Mr. Shife asking if we told our friends about our blogs? Well, I answered "No and I would not want my friends to know about my blog." So this is a big step for me... to share this place. Yikes.
