You know tonight I went out and had dinner with my chum, Zelda. We had a great time. We ate and yakked and flirted a bit with the waiter who looked a lot like Edward Norton (the actor) and left him a nice big tip.
Nothing really spectacular happened. Nothing even unusual. Yeah, she had the cell phone to her ear for a while, had to talk a client off the edge about one thing or another – and she finally wrote on my notepad what she wanted for dinner so I could tell the waiter (the cute one who looked like Edward R. Norton) – and then we talked really about nothing. Family stuff, mutual friends, movies – whatever. Just a really pleasant way to spend time. With a friend.
There are many things in life about which I am not lucky. But having really great friends is an area in which I am extremely lucky. So lucky in fact, I often wonder why any of these people even like me. Or talk to me or agree to be seen in public with me. But they do.
So, to each and every one of you out there who I call a friend, I say thanks. Love you bunches.
