I recently received 642 Tiny Things to Write About and I will try to post some of my responses to the prompts. Here is one: Describe something about your best friend that is often under-appreciated.
You and I have a running joke that you are “Life Actress Number One”
When life isn’t awesome
you don’t let it show
you entertain others with your lively stories
you encourage others with your joyful smile
you let others escape into a world of puns and clever comebacks
you tell others that the world and their lives will be okay
You put on a performance
without letting them see behind the movie screen.
Yet when life is a one-way street,
of only encouraging others,
who encourages you?
Who tells you that the world and your life is going to be okay?
Who gives you a hug?
Who listens to you?
Who smiles for you?
I will and I always will.
I am thankful that I am one of few lucky people
who can see behind the silver screen
who you can tell your crazy life to
who you can trust
who you do not have to entertain
(but I always like it) 🙂
I am thankful that
you are not an actress in our friendship
that we are unscripted.
