It’s Sunday, time for the Outlander Question of the Week.
Today we’re going to talk about friendship. Best friends specifically. I used an image of Rupert and Angus, or as I like to call them – Rupus because I think they embody “best friends”.
First they crack me up, and they crack each other up. They are more like brothers than friends. They have each other’s back (except when it comes to the lassies, then it’s every man for himself). they spend a lot of time insulting one another, but I wouldn’t try that if I were you.
So, the question today is…who is your best friend? The one you can tell anything to and know that they will listen without judging. The one who is willing to try the crazy with you and even encourages your crazy. The one who tells you the truth, even if you don’t really want to hear it. The one who tells you, YES your butt looks big in those pants, but WHO CARES! The one who sits up with you all night and lets you cry when your heart is broken and never once says I told you so.
Mine is a woman named Nicole. She and are certain we are related somehow. We think alike .. we are the same kind of crazy, (don’t tell her I said this, but she’s crazier than I am) we like the same TV shows, but not always the same boys, which generally works out well. We know each other’s little weirdo things, like for instance I know if I get a present from her it’s going to have a whole roll of tape on it and I should just get used to that. She knows if she gets a present from me… not to assume that the box it’s in has anything whatsoever to do with what’s actually IN the box.
She loves me no matter what, and I feel the same for her. We disagree, we fight, but in the end I’d stand in front of a bullet for her and wage war on those who would cause her harm.
She has made my life funnier, more coloful, and full of British actors and I don’t know what I’d do without her.
So, tell me about YOUR best friend and how your life has been enriched by them.
