I told you that my good and oldest friend was coming this weekend. I am so looking forward to it. We are going to a wedding reception and the rest of the time we will just hang out. Her and I always have had so much fun together, and we are always laughing...sometimes to the point we cant even talk.
The summer after we graduated her and I were out every night...going to clubs, drinking, just having a blast! She was my maid of honor in my wedding. After I went to Ft Bragg with the hubby, her and my Mom flew down and spent a week with us.
When I had the Texas escapade I flew over to her house in Oklahoma. She made all the arrangements for me. Then the next day she flew home with me b/c she was meeting her sister here to go to Hilton Head for a week. While we were on the plane we had a few beers and was laughing and joking with the guys sitting across from us, the stewardess brought back a boy in his 20's and said to us....Jason is a little nervous about flying and you two are having such a good time I thought maybe he could sit with you....we said fine...so he sat between her and I. ( BTW ..her name is Barbara). We were making small talk with Jason and I noticed he had a stick with him.....I said..." Are you flying to a Pool Tornament?" He started laughing and said "no", actually he was blind. I apologized and we just laughed it off. By the time we landed Jason was having a blast too, he thanked us and hugged us for making his flight so enjoyable,....lol. When we got to ourselves Barbara looked at me and she said " as soon as I seen his stick I just knew you would ask him if he was a pool player". Well duh, its a natural assumption.( I think I wrote a little about this before.) CRS ya know...Cant remember shit.
One time when we were in high school Barbara, our friend Jessie and I were in Wheeling, W Va...didnt know our way around, but was looking for a particular club we had heard about...we seen these 3 guys and we hollared out the window at them ( they were in their car)...we said " hey! do you know how to get to the Jolly Roger?"...they said yes they were going there too....follow them....so like the dumbasses we were we did. At the next red light one of them ran back and got in our backseat, We started telling him to get out but he said...." hey, my name is Bill and I go to the college of Wheeling"...well, we thought that couldnt be all bad ( as if no rapist or murderers go to college) so, he stayed in our car and we keep following the other 2.
We noticed we were getting in a country area....as in not too many houses...we said...you guys are lieing....get out of this car. he put his hand on his pocket and said..."you are right.. we arent going to the Jolly Roger....we are having a party and we need some girls and you are them....I have a gun in my pocket so keep on driving."...well talk about your life passing in front of your eyes! And poor Barbara was driving! I thought..."well this is it...Im gonna be raped and murdered tonight and never see my family again"...we were crying....I was getting hysterical. Barbara started swerving all over the road and gasping for breath,,,she said " I have a heart condition and Im going to pass out"....it must have scared the guy b/c he said " Im sorry...we wont hurt you..please stop the car and Ill get out." So Barb pulled over and he hopped out....we took off so fast trying to get away from them. Of course we didnt know where we were but at least we got him out of our car. We eventually found our way home. And when I think of it...I think how lucky we were...it could have turned out so differently. But...nonetheless it is just one of the many stupid things we did. One of those things you hope your kid never does!!!
Her and I got our tatto's together. I am always so glad to see her come home, but anymore I am always glad to see her go home because after she is here a few days we are exhausted...lol. We still go out and have a few drinks, we still giggle like teenagers, we stay up half the night. She is the best kind of friend to have...I know she will always be there for me. And I will always be there for her. She has family back here but when she comes home she stays with me because we know how to have fun!
