John – Besides being a U of L fan, he’s been my best friend since age 14. He is like a brother to me. There’s no telling how many hours I’ve spent talking and hanging out with him in my life. John has always been there for me. He’s one of the nicest people anyone could ever know.
Brett – He’s John’s younger brother. Take everything I said about John and just repeat it. Without Brett, I would have been arrested for no telling how many DUI’s or even worse, dead.
Shannon – I’ve only known her for three years. She is by far, one of the best people I’ve ever met in my life. I talk to her about things I hate talking to my guy friends about. She goes out of her way to be a friend and there’s nothing I wouldn’t do for her, her husband or her family.
Kathy – She is Shannon’s mom. Since Thanksgiving is held at a family member’s home I don’t go to, I have ate at her place the past three years. She treats people like family. I enjoy being called “Son of bitch” or “My bitch” by her every time I see her.
Steve – I met him at work back in 2009. He pissed me off last time I saw him, but still a loyal friend. He drove me home a many nights while I was drunk and saved my ass when a whore ex left me out in the freezing cold once.
Josh – We lost touch for years. We started hanging out again in 2011. Josh is a great guy and father. He makes me laugh probably more than anyone I’ve ever met.
Ryan – We hardly hangout or talk these days. Yet, Ryan has always been a loyal friend. I even dedicated “Woody Long” blogging name in his honor. He influenced my sarcasm and comedy style.
The Clemons’ Family – This is Shannon’s and Kathy’s family. Tommy, Sally, Tammy, Keith, Kevin and Sam are all great people. If I lost my parents tomorrow, I would still have a family. That is how this group of people make you feel. I have never seen a family so close or one that treats outsiders like family the way they do. They are a great group of people.
I have other friends. The people named above are the ones I see most, talk to the most and spend the most time with. Don’t feel left out if I didn’t name you.
