Best. Friends. EVAR.

Nurse Ames, when I called her to give her the news that Cap'n Lumpy had been discovered, said, "I'll take myself off of the schedule on Tuesday and take you to the doctor."

Friend Pens the Lotion Slut just ended the phone call we were having with "You'll call me tomorrow, right? And on Tuesday? Just as soon as you can coherently string words together? On my cell phone?"

I asked my bestie, the Russian Prince, for a chatty email and he sent me a thousand-word essay on rebuilt road bikes and broken toes.

I have the best friends ever. And the best family, too.

I am a very, very lucky woman.
