I called a dear friend last night that I haven't talked to in a very long while (way over a year). Too long. She's one of those friends that you can just pick up with a conversation as if you had just talked yesterday. The start of the conversation went something like this:
She ~ "Hello"
Me ~ "Hey, whatcha you doing?"
"Watching Dancing With The Stars" (giggling)
"Dancing With The Stars! Like with Cloris Leachman?" (laughing out loud)
"Yeah (more giggling) did you know she was 82 years old?"
"Oh my stars, that is way too old to be on Dancing With The Stars."
"She did pretty good for her age."
"I don't think she is as bad as when they had Jerry Springer on last year." (both of us ~ laughing out loud)
"Yeah, and he wasn't even one of the first ones off!" (more laughing)
"No kidding..what was up with that? Jerry Springer??" (laughing harder ~ with a snort)
"Well, I don't really watch the show very often, just if I happen to have the TV on. What shows do you watch?"
"I can't really think of any shows I watch without fail except for Ellen Degeneres. I think the last really good family TV show was Home Improvement which I still watch most nights on reruns."
"Yeah, why don't they bring the Partridge Family back....ba ba ba ba ba (take note that she was actually singing the song here)..."
Together in unison "Oh that hair.."
And then we continued laughing and laughing, sometimes uncontrollably, between topics of: Our cats, the 'mole ladies', Richard Simmons, draw backs of Facebook, painting walls, our jobs, chocolate, exercise, food, our family, etc. and before we knew it, it was almost an hour later.
So here is to you dear friend, hope to talk to you again soon. Love you lots!
Click it on and remember!
