Durel and Bryan have been friends since high school. They have lots of stories to tell about one another. I am not at liberty to discuss any of them here.
Amy and I have been friends since 2001, when Durel and I were dating and traveled to New Orleans for a visit.
I just completely freaked myself out that I met Amy 12 years ago.
Anyway, 12 years ago, we were young. We went out in the French Quarter and drank hurricanes and stayed up too late and took cabs and loved life.
Now, we drive SUV's and talk about potty training and time-outs and the health benefits (?) of Z Bars because ohmygosh the kids love them. And we discuss whether we should save our pennies to buy a beach house together in several years. We want our kids to be cousins, in that way that you have cousins that you're not related to.
We want this because when we are all together, we have moments like this:
Bryan, thanks for pulling the wagon and driving to Austin to visit. Amy, thanks for being my twin sister. Let's keep talking about that beach house.
