Sometimes, when you are going through a hard time, and one of your sister soul mates from Oklahoma is also going through a rough time, she gets in her car at 5 p.m. and says to have wine ready when she arrives.
Neither of us realized how much crap we had to tell each other and the bottle emptied quickly. I mentioned that Baker Street Pub was in walking distance and we walked to the bar. We drank. We laughed. We laughed so much I swear we did an ab work out just catching up.
Then it was time to go back to the apartment and since I had recently moved in, the gate code I was given wasn’t working.
Curse words were said here.
We had no idea how we were going to get back in the apartment. And… it’s not in the best of areas, backing up to lovely Como. So Laney and I go searching for our best mode of entry and find the lowest level gate I feel I can scale.
I’m so glad Laney wasn’t filming.
As I swung one leg over the pointy iron gate and looked down I remember saying, something to the effect of, this doesn’t look good.
And I jumped.
And there was a ripping sound.
My shorts had caught on said pointy gate, and I hung for a second in the air, I like to think like an angel…
Then my pants ripped and I busted ass on the other side of the gate, also known as the concrete parking lot, while Laney fell over laughing hysterically.
It’s these friendships that mean the world to me.
Laney… the only friend I know who has a lipstick knife, threatens a boy with it, stabs him with it, and instead of offering help I toppled over laughing hysterically and ask where the hell she got such a fantastic item.
I love you Laney girl. Can’t wait to make Backstreet Boy videos with you on the beach in a few weeks.
