That’s what friends are for

February 9th, 2005

Today, a friend of mine sent me this email. It’s not the usual so-so “inspirational friendship themes” but a mirthful yet real face of friendship that is devoid of any hypocritical finesse.

Here is a series of promises that really speaks to true friendship:

When you are sad –
I will help get you drunk and plot revenge against the sorry bastard
who made you sad.

When you are blue –
I will try to dislodge whatever is choking you.

When you smile –
I will know you finally got laid.

When you are scared –
I will rag on you about it every chance I get.

When you are worried –
I will tell you horrible stories about how much worse it could be and
to quit whining.

When you are confused –
I will use little words.

When you are sick –
Stay the hell away from me until you are well again. I don’t want
whatever you have.

When you fall -!
I will point and laugh at your clumsy ass.

This is my oath … I pledge it till the end.

Why? You may ask. Because you are my friend

Send this to 10 of your closest friends, then get depressed because
you can only think of two and one of them isn’t speaking to you right now


A good friend will help you move.
A really good friend will help you move a body.
