(The following is my response to today’s prompt-Buddy.)
I’m so lucky my best friend is also my wife. We’re far from suave, polished and “high- falutin.”
Nah…that’s not even close to being us.
Paint us goofy, uncoordinated, and great eaters of shoe-leather; as we’ve mastered the art of “opening mouth and inserting foot.”
We’re a whole lot like Lucy and Ethel.
There’s nothing fancy about us. What you see is what you get-sweatpants, sneakers and faded tees. We are a simple kind of folk…not needing a lot to be content. We’re happy as larks, if there’s a fire in the fire-place, grilled cheeses in our hand and Seinfeld on our TV.
We’re just a couple of introverts, navigating a rather noisy world, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. She’s my partner-in-crime, my buddy, and the other half of me!
