Dedicated to Cindy... My Most Bestest Friend

Received this through email and it sooo fits us. We've been through so much together over the years. We've been friends for 25 or 26 years now. We always said that when we're old and gray we would live together... two old biddies getting on each other's nerves. Have you ever seen "The Truman Show" with Jim Carrey? Those two old ladies on the couch... that will be us!

Anyways... here's the email:

Are you tired of those sissy 'friendship' poems that always sound good, but never actually come close to reality?

Well, here is a series of promises that actually speak of true friendship. You will see no cutesy little smiley faces on this card - Just the stone cold truth of our great friendship.

1. When you are sad -- I will jump on the person who made you sad like a spider monkey jacked up on Mountain Dew!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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

3. When you smile -- I will know you are plotting something that I must be involved in.

4. When you're scared -- (after I make fun of you, ya big wuss) we will high tail it out of there, together.

5. When you are worried -- I will tell you horrible stories about how much worse it could be until you quit whining ... ya big baby!!!!

6. When you are confused -- I will speak slowly and use little words.

7. When you are sick --Stay away from me until you are well again. I don't want whatever you have, but you know I care.

8. When you fall -- after I get done laughing, I'll pick you up and dust you off.

9. This is my oath...I pledge it to the end. 'Why?' you may ask -- because you are my FRIEND!

Friendship is like peeing your pants, everyone can see it, but only you can feel the true warmth.

Here are a few pics of Cindy over the years:
