True Friendship = Dill Pickle Potato ChipsApril 9, 2011
True friendship is when your daughter drives 30 minutes each way to come hang out and make dinner and take care of you on her only days off a very stressful job.
True friendship is when your girlfriend who doesn’t cook, comes over and makes you lunch. Twice.
True friendship is your when husband brings you the flowers he knows you love even though he hates getting flowers, cooks every night, even though he hates cooking, and lets your dog out in the middle of the night and picks up her presents before he mows, even though it’s your dog and poop-scooping is your job. And he doesn’t complain about any of it.
True friendship is when your dog immediately slows her pace to match yours, sits at your door or at your feet and doesn’t let you leave her sight until she’s sure you’re not going to fall on your face.
True friendship is when your girlfriend who likes sweet pickles remembers you like dill pickles and all-things-salty-crunchy, makes a special trip to buy and bring over Pringles Extreme Screamin’ Dill Pickle flavored potato chips. And because she knows it will give you a laugh.
True friendship is what you get to experience when you can’t do much for yourself and are forced to let others do for you. It’s not so bad. 🙂
