I always enjoy it when my friends do or participate in cool things so I can brag about them. Everyone I know will also know about my other friends, due almost entirely to the stories I constantly tell about them. I always start with "my friend, Misty..." or "my old roommate, Daniela..." and continue ad nauseam until the worn out new friend will exclaim: "You can just refer to them by their names, I know who they are!" While I'm sure it can be annoying at times, I feel that it's really an early introduction: all of my friends kind of know each other before they even meet in person. So really I'm just doing a service and connecting cool people with one another.
So on that subject, I have a funny story about my friend Sarah. Sarah is my friend from high school (well, really junior high but I choose to forget those years ever occurred) and was my partner in searching for direction when I was trapped in my hometown after grad school and couldn't find a job. And, ladies and gentlemen, Sarah is going to be on television! Why, you ask? Because the lovely people at ProActive have not only done lovely things for her skin, but they are flying her to San Francisco so she can share her success! I love this story. I love that someone can get nice skin and a free trip to SFO. Keep a lookout for the infomercials people, because THAT is my friend!!
