Who You Gonna' Call?
I had a difficult time coming up with the title to this article. I thought of things like, "who's your buddy," "your adventure gal," "dial up trouble," and "go-to friend," (which has a whole other meaning than the one I wanted!). Then it hit me, "Who you gonna' call" when that crazy, adventurous, questionable plan comes to mind? It's those times when you know you shouldn't go it alone, but the thought of actually asking somebody to join you seems crazier than the idea.
Over the years, I've written a lot on friendship. Friends come in all shapes, sizes, genders, and depths, some lasting a short while, others a lifetime. Today I'm writing about the female friend in your life who says, "What time are you picking me up?" right after you pitch her your latest scheme. This is a special friend indeed. We all have one, hopefully, two, or three.
I've been blessed with a handful of fun, beautiful, follow-me anywhere friends for whom I'd do the same in a heartbeat (LBW, MF, SPK, LMF, SR, LRW to initial a few). These are those female friends who know your soul and will support you even when what you are doing, going through, or planning, throw both of you into the unchartered waters of life. They drive the car, carry your bag, push you uphill when you are out of steam, and ALSO tell you when you are really losing it.
Today, think about who these women are in your life. Then pick up the phone... "Who you gonna' call?"
