Erin, the beauty in the middle, I met in a rather unconventional way, I'd say. See, I was on the toilet. Yep, On. The. Toilet. But back up a bit, cause there's more to this story. I was maybe five years old and had some sort of digestive problem, to put it delicately. Basically the hairs that move the food along in the large intestine up and died on me (thanks a lot, hairs) and left me unable to go numero dos.
But since I didn't stop eating, I didn't stop trying, if you know what I mean.
So I spent a lot of time on the toilet.
And I guess my mom just decided to keep life as normal as possible for me while I was on that toilet. Thus she introduced me to the new girl, Erin, while I was on the toilet. Straining, if you must know.
And that was it. It sealed the deal for us, I guess, because we've been the best of friends since then. And tonight we spent a long time sitting down and talking, sharing our hearts; it was soul food, you know?
But no, I was not on the toilet.
And Christine, the beauty on the right? Well I don't technically remember meeting her. I think I might have been three years old or something. I do, however, remember her running around outside my house, tanned and tomboyish, and eating tomatoes whole. Like an apple. It made an impression on me, I guess.
And we've been together ever since, thick as thieves, as they say.
Actually, the three of us are thick as thieves.
And if you can say that ten times in a row I will totally give you a high five.
