Every guy deserves a best friend in his youthful years. Mine was named Curtis. He was straight, I was gay, but it wasn’t a problem for us. We did everything together, starting my nine grade year and continuing all the way through college, where we roomed together. We shared everything with each other, and never had secrets we kept from each other. It was great.
I’m not sure if guys in high school have best friends these days, what with social networking and all the other Internet nonsense consuming kids’ lives these days.
Anyway, I am still in touch with Curtis. He lives in another state with his wife, but we talk on the phone fairly often, and it’s always good to hear his voice. He has a terrific sense of humor and we always laugh a good deal when we talk.
It’s been a productive day for me. I’m preparing my vacation rental for my next guests, and that took up a good deal of time. I also ran errands–hardware store and booze market. Nothing planned for this evening, other than dining on leftovers and watching a Netflix series.
Have a nice Tuesday night, friends. 🙂
