#TheHump wasn’t that high yesterday,
I spent a lot time outside; I went out to play.
I met a girlfriend in the leisure yard,
we spent hours on memories, they came fast & hard.
We spent hours on projecting and forecasting tomorrow.
Post 6-hours of hanging out our parting bore a little sorrow.
Because as much as we like hanging out and having fun
to do this long term? Time we’ve set aside equals none.
She promises she’ll do better, and I said the same.
In two different states we reside but the love remains
as tight as it ever was, for she is a girlfriend my childhood.
Just to know she’s doing well and is happy – does my heart good.
I didn’t learn too much new 411 that I didn’t already know:
besides she’s still living sangle and she’s still moving slow. 😀
I love that about her, yo! She moves slow and I move fast.
It’s been 35-years of consistency and our relationship still lasts.
She’s raising 3 kids with 1 in elementary.
When she can’t get away she lives vicariously through me.
She colleged long and started a family later.
I questioned my timing then, but now I feel I did myself a favor
by having my kids young (foregoing party time) I felt quite giving
today that time has been given back and I’ve no need for babysitting.
We’re living in two different acts of life – we are both the same age
but because I had children at 19, mine are on a grown page.
I now act as if I’m 19 because I’ve no kids in the house,
I’ve taken to travel like I’m paid to. I travel about.
Life is good, though as I mature,
I realize great relationships are an aging cure.
No matter your age, your childhood friends remain
the people they were when you first met — we met in 7th grade.
Yesterday we did behave while having girl time: we shopped and dined,
But not a minute before I got her tipsy off those orange juice mimosa’s of mine.
We finished up our playful eve
at a spa doing foot reflexology.
I tell you child,
a little Asian lady drove me wild.
It was only for 30-minutes
but she put every skill she had in it.
Woo! I enjoyed her plenty.
I was enamored, I tipped her $20.
She happily accepted and duly split the fee
with the masseuse that did my girlfriends feet.
What an awesome treat.
When was the last time you stepped away from the social fringe
and hung out with a real and true childhood friend?
For me, I am finding that I value them more and am hanging out more often.
Perhaps as you age in wisdom and grace, your heart for appreciation softens.
I’m an introspective person and time well invested speaks volumes to me,
Hanging out with great friends, starting things up again – I’m excited about WE.
Life is great!
Go outside and play.
Or stay in and get old.
You have been told.
