It’s a good thing Alexander Graham Bell invented the telephone. Otherwise, I would be lacking in the friend department. Living in four states before I turned 30 means my peeps are spread out cross-country. Sure most of us have long-distance acquaintances we touch base with through email or Christmas cards, but my BEST girlfriends all live so far away none of them has seen both my children in person! Let’s see, in the past week, I talked to Tanisha in New Jersey, Gina in North Carolina, Kylie in Washington, Stefanee in Georgia and Tami in California. All of them are a couple cell phone keys away. Isn’t that the cool thing about technology? Your friends aren’t limited to the lady next door and the guy who sits by you at work. Sadly in my business, most of my close co-workers have moved on to other jobs or I moved. We always talk about getting together in the near future… then life gets in the way and it never happens. Some day I hope our children can meet. Perhaps when they’ve gone off to college we can get together to party! Until then, I will continue to rely on rollover minutes and Facebook updates to keep my girls close at heart. There is a silver lining to all this for Dave. I never have a Girls’ Night Out. Then again, he can never get away from me.
