The fact of the matter is that we all need a little help now and then. When we’re down and out and feeling like we’re about to fall apart, who’s there to pick up the pieces? When your girlfriend breaks up with you, who forces your lazy depressed butt to get up and get dressed then takes you to the strip club? When your boyfriend says it’s over, who takes you shopping until you’re ready to collapse from exhaustion? True friends point us toward to light at the end of the tunnel even when we might not be able to see it for ourselves.
Variety is the spice of life and our friends definitely come in all shapes and sizes. There’s the “work buddy,” the only person at the office you can tell that one joke to without fear of a lawsuit. The “dependable one” who will bail you out of jail after a night of having just a little too much fun. The “best friend” who can’t bail you out because he/she is sitting right next to you in the slammer. Then there are “the ones we don’t talk about.” Most of us have at least one of these friends. They may not be the best in social situations and it probably wouldn’t be a great idea for them to spend too much time with your family telling stories (which you later vehemently deny), but they would do anything for you and the feeling is mutual.
