TTIC #30: Best Friends

This week's Twilight Tuesday Inspiration Challenge is about the relationship between Bella and Jacob, and how they're best friends. I am very fortunate to have 2 Best Friends, other than my sisters and husband. My Best Friends are Lisa and Terry. Sorry Lisa, but this time I'm gonna talk about Terry. Terry an I have been friends for... over 10 years. I lost track. We met at work. And, although she was afraid of me at first (a manager dressed in goth could be a bit intimidating I suppose!), we soon hit it off. We've been through a bunch of crap together, but she has always stuck by me, when no one else would. One of my favorite things about Terry is that we can be total dorks together... which we do often. The things we have in common are so... I don't know... campy, I guess... our relationship could be viewed as silly, but it's much deeper than that. I could talk to her about basically everything, and she knows that she could do the same. We're always brutally honest with each other. Neither of us like to sugar-coat things, and I love that about her too. I could go on and on... But, let me just rewrite what I put on my page. That'll give you a good idea as to what our relationship is like!

You Know She's Your Best Friend When...

*She stands by you when no one else will

*She tells you when you're being an a**hole

*She delights in guilty pleasures like NKOTB, and Twilight with you

*You reserve drinking Midori Sours and Kahlua only for when you're together

*When you kick, scream, and whine about how badly you want the Twilight t-shirt from Walmart and that she should buy it for you for no other reason than she's your Best Friend... and then she does!

A couple of notes... No, I do not drink while I am nursing... so we have not shared a Midori Moment in like 3 years! And no, I do not typically go to Walmart (not that there's anything wrong with going!), but it was during the Midnight Release Party and we had to scope out all the Twilight stuff that everybody was selling!

So, there you go... Terry, I love ya. And, I told you I'd blog about you soon!!!
