On Sunday, one of my friends called on the phone. She said that she needed to talk to her best friend.
I was floored.
After my ex using the term "best friend" as a knife in my back, I never wanted to hear those two words again. She would say we were best friends, then she would say we weren't. It was something that could be taken away on a whim. And she did. Over and over and over.
But now, I have one. I have someone who I can talk to about anything. Anytime. She doesn't judge. She listens. She gives advice if I want it. She'll drink a beer with me and completely take my mind off of any problems that I have.
She nods with me when I'm right and tells me that I'm being a dumbass when I'm wrong. She always makes me laugh.
And honestly, I have three more besides her. I feel like I won the friend lottery in the last few years.
How did I get so lucky?
