Today is a free-write with NaBloPoMo, which rocks because I get to honor my biffle today!
During the past 9 months that GingerSass has been around, I’ve, for the most part, omitted talking about others unless I have their explicit permission to exploit their lives on my blog.
Today, I’m writing a vague yet specific birthday post to my best friend. We’re going to call him AL because those are his initials.
I once attacked AL’s car with post its.
AL is the Will to my Grace, if Grace were a lesbian. We’ve known each other for almost 5 years, and we’ve gotten each other through A LOT. I’m talking love, break ups, death, HGTV, Lucky Charms marshmallow hot chocolate, blizzards on Halloween, brinks of insanity, bowling, being a part of Res Life, moves, pet deaths, new pets, lots of alcohol, late night orders of food, and all of this just describe things that have happened on weekends!
I’m so fortunate to have a best friend who gets and accepts my craziness. (His reaction to anything that goes wrong in my life has always been “It’s because you’re a ginger.” That just sums up our friendship.) He’s my other half, and I honestly do not know what I’d do without him in my life.
Today, AL, I raise a beer in your honor. May you have health, happiness, HGTV, and rubber in your life this year. I’m sorry I cannot celebrate with you today, but I want you to know how much I love youse! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
We took this beautiful Christmas card photo at a Kmart last Halloween. There was a snowstorm that weekend, and this seemed like the appropriate thing to do.
Also, the pirate mask I put on AL’s face to mask his identity actually fits his personality. <3
