They inspire me. They make me laugh. They look out for each other. They console me during my downs, and they celebrate my ups.
They give me a rides to the airport. They have great tastes in clothing. They write books. They direct TV shows. They travel around the world. They're really good cooks.
Some of them look like the hotter, younger siblings of celebrities. Some of them are celebrities.
My friends know my weaknesses. They motivate me to exploit my strengths. They're brave. And talented. They don't stand for bullshit. They have blogs. They know people who know people. They put me on lists. They hook me up with DVD screeners so that I don't have to pay $12 for a movie that will inevitably be nominated for an Oscar.
Other friends of mine call them "good people."
They treat me to coffee. They exhibit outstanding hospitality. They surprise me in the best ways possible. They call me out of the blue...just because. They leave me texts that make me smile. They trust me (and vice versa). They're my second family. And they are unforgettable.
My friends are awesome.
