“Lots of people want to ride with you in the limo, but what you want is someone who will take the bus with you when the limo breaks down.” — Oprah Winfrey
Even before high school graduation, our interests differed. We never hung out in the same social group. Our life stages (marriage, kids, career) moved on different timelines. Several months drift by between our phone conversations, and now that I think about it, she has never physically been in my current house nor I in her current home (we live in different parts of the country).
With all the apparent separation, she is my “drop of the hat” friend. I could call and say “I need you.” Her first response would not be “what’s wrong”. Rather, the words I’d hear: “I’m on my way.”
