How I know you are a true friend.   When I was sick you stayed far away from me until I got better so you didn’t catch my germs.  When I screamed like a baby on the roller coaster you refused to stop teasing me about it.  When I was blue you pushed me over a chair to help dislodge the food I was choking on.  When I was sad you took me to a cheap diner where we plotted imaginary revenge against the jerk.   When I puked from the food we ate in that cheap diner you held back my hair.  When I was worried you told me horrible stories about how much worse it could be until I stopped whining.  When we went shopping you refused to let me buy that hat I thought was so cool.  When there was a booger hanging out of my nose you told me.  When I was confused you talked reaaalllly slow and used little words.   When I made a fool of myself you knew I hadn’t done a permanent job.

(P.S. Thanks again to Linda Sue for the "friends" picture, and to all my bloggy friends and family for being there after The Surgery last March.)

Back when poems rhymed
This would not be one.

But since spam is a message,
And a blackberry has a memory,
And windows go on a desktop,
We keep our music on a cloud,
And party is a verb,
And read is an noun,
It is.

Oh, No! I've just been unfriended by Emily Dickinson!
