Dear Diary, Jan. 10/85
I am not Blah Blah's best friend anymore. She wrote her friends in order and she, for the first time put Blah Blah first. It made me mad or sad one or the other or both. We've been best friends for a long time and now were not. I get along good with Blah Blah and Blah Blah and Blah Blah, so maybe they'll be my new best friends.
I actually don't like Blah Blah. Never have, never will, very much. She was always miss he-man. The boys are afraid of her! Now that's dumb. I'm not afraid of her because I'm the same as any other girl especially her. Well, I guess I better be going now.
Are you starting to see a bestie trend? 😂 My insecurities started at a ripe young age..... I mean in a town of 50... if you didn't have "A Best Friend" you were not right in the head. I mean, you needed that person to back you up when the bullies came a callin'! Right? You needed that reliable sleep-over chick. You couldn't be friends with everyone. That was for all of those granola'y people. And that would be exhausting...
Anyways, it's funny because I use Blah Blah in order not to hurt anyone's feelings in the present time. But all 5 or 6 of us can figure out who the Blah Blah's were!!! Might have to make up a special "Blah Blah" t-shirt for all of us Canal Flats chicks.
I'm pretty sure that I am not alone in having always wanted to have "A bestie". We all need friends. And sometimes it's so amazing to have that one that just stays. Stays around through all of the crap and the rainbows. Stays around to pull your lifeless body over the sliding door hump to bring you to bed after a particular "vodka bash". They "choose" to stay, which makes us feel so good. (Either that or they have crappy boundary issues and need to exit from your friendship but don't know how)..... 🤷🏻♀️. Bam. There's some realness for some people maybe..
I am blessed to have amazing "besties" in my life right now. We have to mostly keep in touch through snap chat but thank God for the SNAPCHAT! You all have heard me talk about them before so I won't sing their praises today...
One of them, Debbie Twomey (Laine), chose to have a 3 or 4 hour long facetime with Ken and I the other night... It was so amazing. Her husband Christian was there too (that is a rare occasion because he is a very busy real estate dude in Calgary) So it was like all 4 of us were out for the night chit chatting and laughing. And then the guys went to bed and we continued our conversation. It's been a 35 year long conversation.... ❤️.
Cheers to besties!!!! 🥂
K. Gotta go sit on my deck for a bit. 🤘🏻😜🤘🏻
