Thursday 13 Friendship Poems

You may or may not know, this blog is the home of my new novel, The List (buy it on Amazon!).

This week's 13 has nothing to do with my book. Are you shocked? Well, it also doesn't have 13 items. I'm breaking all kinds of rules today. My friend Monica sent me this in an email, and I thought it was funny enough to share.

13 (or 9) New Takes on a Friendship Poem:
Are you tired of those sissy friendship poems that never come close to reality? Well, Let's try this my way, just the stone cold truth of our 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 are 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 the hell 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 ass off!!
9. This is my oath: I pledge it to the end. 'Why?' you may ask; because you are my FRIEND
10. Hope
11. you
12. enjoyed
13. it!

  2. #3 is typically something that would come from Bud's mouth. Sure 'nough!!!! LOL

    Happy Thursday.

  3. LOL, Yep, that's a good one. I got the email quite some time back.

  4. That's a good one! I love how ya got my back in #1! You're an awesome friend to have. And I think that Spider Monkey jacked up on Mountain Dew would make a pretty good band name!

  5. Love it - though line 7 is hitting rather close to home this week. Urgh!

  6. Pretty quirky and only a real friend would understand these.

  7. Hahaha for #6! Could you say tiny instead of little?

  8. Every poem demostrates the love, compassion and good will human being. In fact i read a wonderful poem few time ago. I really loved. That´s why i think this blog is very interesting, most of all for the people who enjoy the poems. I saw
    costa rica investment opportunities recently, it was a great site and i want to share it for you.
