My Own Slice of Life on Being Part of a Dynamic Duo
My best friend and I consider ourselves to be a dynamic duo when it comes to our work, shopping, and finishing each other’s funniest phrases. We are completely equal as members of this pair. We follow each other’s lead and pick up where the other left off. We talk and laugh and complain and laugh and eat and laugh and work and laugh and design bulletin boards and laugh and shop and laugh and drink and laugh and wear each other’s clothes and laugh and organize shoe closets and laugh and decorate each other’s houses and laugh and get haircuts and laugh and play with each other’s children and laugh and send text messages and laugh and vacation together and laugh and survive each day and laugh. We are each other’s work husband and the one that listens to complaints about our at home husbands. We Google phrases that we try to incorporate into our everyday life because we just can’t figure out what they all mean but we insist on saying them at all the wrong times. And then we laugh some more. She is a part of my family and I am a part of hers. We can tell each other the truth even when it is hard to hear. She is the first one I want to tell my good news to and I insist on being on the phone with her as she finds out her own good news. We are aunts to each other’s children. We have secrets and inside jokes. We belong together. We just go together. Like Batman and Robin.
