National Girlfriend's Day!

UPN Girlfriends
So today is officially National Girlfriends Day. Who knew? I didn't. I only knew because I read a tweet from Sheckys. I think it's awesome. Why? Because I have a best girlfriend (going 20 years strong), and finding out that today is National Girlfriends Day put a smile on my face.

I have had the same best friend since high school. Actually, I met my best friend in middle school. Now that I think about it, I'm not sure how our friendship began since I was athletically competitive, and she was athletically challenged (I'm putting that mildly. Love ya E-bone!), but next thing I knew, we were having slumber parties and filling condoms up with red Kool Aid (Don't ask!).

My girl and I have been through thick and thin. Sometimes I think that we might get married—this would be a purely sexless relationship—but, it would be a good relationship. We’ve been in shootouts (ATTENTION! We weren’t the shooter or the shootees). We’ve gone to the clink together (I will never tell), and we’ve been lovingly beat with the Yellow Pages together (teenagers shouldn’t be allowed to date). We have done everything together.

As adults, my bestie and I live thousands of miles away from each other, but it still feels like we're just blocks away from each other. In fact, just this morning I called her to help me with my busted radiator. Yes, I called her before I called the tow truck to come and pick me up off the side of the road. That’s friendship!

Unlike many women that I know, my relationship with my girlfriend has never faltered. We have never had a disagreement that we couldn’t move past. We've never stopped speaking to each other. We’ve never fought over a man. We’ve never stopped being girlfriends. NEVER!

Shout-out to my bestie. See you in 2066. I know our wedding day will be awesome. I’ll even let you wear white

How long have you known your bestie?


  1. I wanna give a shout out to my best friend. She thinks it's cool to call in the early morning is she in trouble.

  2. I love my best friend. She is definitely invited to my next wedding. She may be crazy for all the wrong reasons, but I wouldn't trade her for the world. See you in November!


  3. I love my besties so much. I have 4 of them and would not trade them for the world. Out of them all I have know one since pre-k, lost touch after kindergarten and reunited in 5th grade. And that would be my girl Nik, we have been inseperable ever since then. We met up with our other besties in middle school which includes Ray,Joi and Eb. We all were stuck together like glue until after graduation. The experiences we had were always good and we found ourselves in some crazy situations, but at the end of the day we all did it TOGETHER. When we look back we have to laugh, because Lord knows we were CURIOUS. Thank God our moms only caught us up in a few adventures but we managed to grow into some very fine women. Some of us managed to stay together and some of us seperated. I on the other hand have personal relationships still with all of them but one. My poor Eb is going thru it right now and we haven't spoken for about a year now. Even with all of our ups and downs no matter what I know we still have each other backs. I love that I can call anyone of them and they are like what is wrong, what you want me to do, good or bad. (That is just how we roll). I would give the world for these girls because I know they would do the same. I hope that one day we can all be together again but I know whether we are near or far, those are my BESTIES FOR LIFE.
