None of that Sissy Stuff!

Are you tired of those sissy 'friendship' poems? Well, here is a series of promises that actually speak of true friendship. You will see no cutesy little smiley faces on this post- Just the stone cold truth of a great friendship.

1. When you are sad --I will jump on the person who made you sad like a spider monkey jacked up on Mountain Dew!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

2. When you are blue -- I will try to dislodge whatever is choking you.

3. When you smile -- I will know you are plotting something that I must be involved in.

4. When you're scared -- we will high tail it out of here.

5. When you are worried -- I will tell you horrible stories about how much worse it could be until you quit whining, ya big baby!!!!

6. When you are confused -- I will use little words.

7. When you are sick --Stay away from me until you are well again. I don't want whatever you have.

8. When you fall -- I'll pick you up and dust you off-- After I laugh my butt off!!

9. This is my oath...I pledge it to the end. 'Why?' you may ask -- because you are my FRIEND!

Friendship is like peeing your pants, everyone can see it, but only you can feel the true warmth.

So true! True friendship is not something that can be easily expressed in words, only in actions.

I agree Pollyanna. It takes a good friend to walk the talk.

Debbie...My kind of poem and idea of friendship. I just had an overnight with a friend like this. I don't know how she roped me into it but I helped her decorate her Christmas tree. We spent hours doing it and could barely move our body parts when we finished. Still, it was lots of fun with a ton of friendly insults and lots of laughs. She loves doing tacky - a tree with the world on it:)- and it turned out to be beautiful....Nancy:)

Sounds like you had a good work out if you couldn't move afterwards.

Sometimes we start out not wanting to do something but after we get started it turns into fun. It helps when it's with someone we like.
