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:
