What I Done Yesterday

Yesterday I joined John and Lee for John’s birthday lunch. He turned 645, but he looks fabulous. I had to bring Bex because my live-in nanny is nonexistent, but I brought M&M’s and animal crackers and toys to keep him happy.

I am just basically not social anymore, because my friends live in the city and I am about 20 miles outside of the city in a suburb where I have no friends. (That sounds pathetic, but I’m fine with it.) So my point is, it was really fun to see them, and I could pay attention to about 65% of what we were talking about- in between retrieving crayons and wiping up pools of ketchup.

John and Lee have been together for 20 years, and they are both highly sarcastic and creative, which is how I pick my friends- by sarcasm and creativity levels. John and I met at work about 14 freaking years ago, and he taught me how to be a Prop Stylist. We have all sorts of weird things in common. He’s that sort of friend- where you click immediately and parts of your brains seem identical.

Since I haven’t gotten the hang of remembering to use my camera out in the world, here is my illustrated rendition of our lovely lunch:

    Kids pretty much are all about poop. Lots and lots of poop.

    I'm always amazed at moms who can have conversations and "man the child" at the same time. Many fabulous hats you wear. and glad you had fun with your friends.

    Picking friends basiced on sarcasm and creativity levels = the right way to pick friends. I have one friend who is a master of both, and she and I always enjoy great laughs and keeping busy with creative projects. And margaritas. We enjoy margaritas too.

    Best. Thing. Ever.

    I want to be friends with John and Lee too. I love sarcastic/creative types.

    My live-in nanny is non-existent too. What's with that?!

    Margaritas is a fine way to enjoy a friend. Margaritas + sarcasm = belly laughs.

    I don't know, but it's totally not cool with me.

    Love your illo! I like my friends to be sarcastic and creative too. Better still if they understand the crayon/juice conundrum when you have a kid with you.

    Thanks for popping by the Fibro.

    I have no friends because they all live in the burbs and we live in the city. That also sounds sad, but I am also ok with it (no, I'm not, but I'll live). Also also, I don't know why I wasn't subscribed to your blog, but I am nooooow.

      Yeah, I'm not actually okay with it, either. That's why I love my computer friends. Smooch.
