Somehow I managed to disappoint three friends in one week. In order to
buy back their affections show them how much I care, I’m going to list five reasons why I love each of them.
1 ) She has long flowing beautiful hair that I’m incredibly jealous of.
2 ) She threw apple cores off the intracoastal with me.
3 ) She drank what can only be described as “liquor salsa” with me and lived to tell the tale.
4 ) She likes “The Lady of Shalott” and “Seven Brides for Seven Brothers”.
5 ) She enjoyed the mediocre surprise party I threw for her.
1 ) She lets me call her ridiculous nicknames like “Madame Verde Puffylumps” and “Caffey con leche.”
2 ) When I annoyed her in Bolivia by waking her up at 7am she chose to continue being my friend.
3 ) She laid down in the grass with me and took a nap.
4 ) She always makes me feel like I’m the funniest person in the world even when my wit runneth dry.
5 ) Her inability to speak Spanish is highly entertaining.
1 ) She gives good hugs.
2 ) She leaves comments on my facebook page that give me the warm fuzzies.
3 ) She’s extraordinarily patient and kind.
4 ) She’s probably one of the most resourceful and creative people on the face of the planet.
5 ) When she talks to me she starts off every sentence with an excited “Gyasi Byng!” that always puts me in a good mood.
I’m very sorry I did not get to see any of you this week.
Please still love me.
