I admit it: I've had the blues lately. Which is why I was so happy to see my oldest friend over the weekend.

She exasperates me. She makes questionable decisions and doesn't accept responsibility. That's true. But she also loves me. She's smart and funny. And oh! How she makes me laugh!

She was in town for a convention. We met Saturday for drinks in the hotel bar, then we went to dinner, and had more (this time soft) drinks. In all we spent 8 hours together.  I laughed so hard I was hoarse.

We've known each other since Kindergarten. We've been friends since we bonded over our love of The Beatles after their appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show. We have so much history, and she gets me.

I am grateful for her for showing up when I needed her.
