This afternoon, Bubba asked me what a roommate was. We gave him a quick explanation, but it reminded me of something that's been running through my mind recently.
When I went off to college, I planned to share an apartment with my best friend from high school. Everyone warned me "DON'T live with your best friend. It will ruin your friendship."
And sure enough, it didn't go that well. Well, at first it did, but then things kind of went haywire.
And then later, I lived with another friend and everybody warned me: "Don't live with your friends!" And sure enough: good at first, later = haywire.
But tell me, what is the #1 advice people give you when you're looking for a mate? Marry your best friend.
But how is that supposed to work exactly? Marry your best friend. But don't live with them? 'Cause it will ruin your friendship? Gee, that doesn't bode well for marriage now does it?
I guess the only saving grace is that at least we're not fighting over boys.
