The Buddy System

Everybody needs a buddy. Maybe a spouse but more likely it’s your BFF, your Best Friend Forever. A Best Friend who will tell you things nobody else will. Things like, “There’s a 2-inch hair growing out of your left ear.” It’s important to know these things. Or just tuck the tag in the back of your blouse without saying anything.

To me the greatest treasure one can have is a dear friend. Most of us have several friends, maybe a lot of friends. But usually only one or two truly dear friends – the ones you can count on anytime, any place for anything.
