That Girl

We all have this friend. You know, the one that instigates things, that convinces you to get out of your pjs and go out, that makes you have one more shot when you don't think you can, that dares you to do something crazy, and that makes you feel alive. I have one of those friends from college, and I miss her. She was one of the reasons why I didn't graduate from college a semester early. I'm glad I didn't, because I had the best semester ever with her. She was the one who encouraged me to drink before staff meetings, to bitch about life over a glass of wine, and showed me that partying can be fun, no matter where we were. She encouraged me when I didn't know what I had to offer, and was always there for a good laugh.

I miss her not only because of her sarcasm, but also because here in D-town I don't have that type of friend. And man, sometimes I really wish I did. Especially when I feel old. I heart my circle of friends, don't get me wrong. But sometimes I wish I could be more crazy, without having to feel stupid or immature. I don't want to be the "boozer" of the group, forcing people to drink. I don't want to plan on getting wasted. I want it to come naturally. Maybe I'm looking to relive some parts of my college years, but I'm not entirely sure about that. I mean, I'm definitely responsible, and I know my limits, which unfortunately have changed dramatically in the past year or so. I used to be able to handle 4 drinks a night. Now I get through 2 and I'm done. Which isn't bad either, because that just saves me money because I don't have to buy a bunch of drinks. Anyways, the point is, I'm on the lookout for a drinking buddy...any takers?

Every girl needs a friend like this, they really help in tough times and make you appreciate life even more sometimes. Life's too short to feel down after all!

I always recommend finding a random hobo for a drinking buddy...three reasons:

1. You will never be the drunkest one...
2. You will look the best
3. You will smell the best...

Andhari- I totally agree!

Meatbag- I like the way you think.
