Guess who I met on my block today? Amanda! I’d been Upstate when she returned from Australia, and we weren’t supposed to reunite until tomorrow. But she happened to be in the area (no one ever says that when you live in Brooklyn!) and caught me when I was coming home from work.
I love that I can be as goofy as I want to be around her. I can bitch as much as I want. I can tell her the same stories she’s probably heard a hundred times and she doesn’t interrupt. I guess that’s what happens when you sleep head-to-toe and travel with the same person for a whole year. I think everybody needs a friend like that.
