A friendship poem

The neighbor that used to live right next door (10 acres away) moved last summer and we have missed having their family close by. She sent me this "poem" with a note about missing me....I thought it was pretty funny.

“Real Friendship”(With none of that Sissy Crap!!!!)Are you tired of those sissy "friendship" poems that always sound good, but never actually come close to reality?Well, here is a series of promises that actually speak of true friendship.

1. When you are sad -- I will help you get drunk and plot revenge against the sorry bastard who made you that way.

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

3. When you smile -- I will know you finally got laid.

4. When you are scared -- I will rag on you about it every chance I get.

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

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

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

8. When you fall -- I will point and laugh at your clumsy ass.

9. This is my oath..... I pledge it to the end. "Why?" you may ask ?, "Because you are my friend".

Remember....when life hands you Lemons, get some tequila and salt and call me!!

Great sentiments for a true friendship expressed here! But I think lemons in your bra would be very uncomfortable.... not enough room in mine!!
