"Did you hear she tried to kill herself two weeks ago?" "WHAT!?"
"Yeah. Really. She took sixty nine Tylenol right in front of her husband because she found out he was having an affair. He did nothing to stop her. She claims she was trying to "test his love" or some such stupid thing- she went to a mental institution but they let her out. I don't know why they let her out. They shouldn't have let her out."
This was part of our conversation a few Saturdays ago.
I have to say, though I feel sorry for the aforementioned woman and though we can't fathom, in our wildest dreams, "Who would boink Brad? I mean, Brad? Brad? Eww", it is nice to have a friend who trusts you and who you trust.
Business is only part of the story. You have to have balance.
My friend "A" even tried to show me how to make something in the kitchen last week. There were only 3 ingredients so I think I can handle that. She's going to teach me how to make Christmas stockings too- and I sincerely hope our friendship can long endure it.
(This little monkey, who she says is quite jealous of her husband, sits on her bed- so I thought it was very appropriate!)
