Friday Five for July 11, 2003

1. Do you remember your first best friend? Who was it?

Wow. I’m not sure. There might have been this one kid when I was like three … I can sorta remember him … I think his name was John. But I’d probably say that my first best friend was Donnie. I hung out with him from second grade until eighth grade when I moved from Tennessee.

2. Are you still in touch with this person?

No. My parents visited his parents some years ago during one of their trips down to Tennessee. Last I know he was married and working as an engineer in Atlanta.

3. Do you have a current close friend?

Yes, of course. Don’t be silly. In alphabetical order … Dad, Bro, Mom, Shaft, Singer …

4. How did you become friends with this person?

Dad … He’s my Dad.

Bro … He’s my Brother.

Mom … She’s my Mom.

Shaft … It’s been mentioned before, but basically … I was in an accident, he blew me off, we met afterwards and have been buds ever since … technically speaking … Shaft is my closest … I see him practically daily, talk with him otherwise, know what the bathroom smells like after he’s used it, trust him with my life, would do anything for him … and get this … in hanging out, what? … almost 15 years … I’ve never been even remotely irritated with him. Totally kewl … and we kompletely laugh our asses off about things and people almost all of the time.

Singer … I have no idea, for some fortunate reason, the world’s most perfect woman has always been a great friend and kind to a dweeb like me.

5. Is there a friend from your past that you wish you were still in contact with? Why?

Nah … not really. The ones I wish I did … I have. The ones I didn’t … well, sure … it’d be nice to see them, be in contact with them … but it isn’t critical for my completeness nor happiness.

  1. “an engineer in Atlanta”

    sorry, i keep imagining Buster Keaton…

    the bathroom observation was a gas…
    (this dumb joke is what stinks)

    since it’s TMI time…

    in college, i wasn’t the least bit
    secretive about my bi sexuality
    (and i self-labeled as transVESTITE)
    so i’m having lunch in the student government
    office with this guy who, like, HAD to know,
    and he asks the eternal question:
    “If semen is made of glucose,
    why doesn’t it taste sweet?”
    and i casually reply,
    “It does.”


  2. lol … It’s not an Amy-original line … I can’t remember who said it, but a stand-up comic tossed it out in reference to Billy Joel and Christy Brinkley’s relationship … it was funny at the time … but then again, I didn’t hear it at breakfast. Sorry for the timing. ๐Ÿ™‚
