If you know the rest of that phrase fantastic. If you believe it to be true then your an even bigger asshole than some people think I am. However, there is something to be said to having some time even if it’s just an afternoon where its just you and your male friend(s).
Today is a normally scheduled day off for me on primary gig and my per-diem job did not require my services as they were a half day only so woo hoo I had a legit whole day off. As a result I got to sleep in a bit and still got some home chores done. During the afternoon I was able to have lunch with a friend and catch up with him even though this is the busy season for him as he is an accountant.
This evening I caught up with my best friend and best man for my future nuptials. Since he recently decided to pull the trigger on his own engagement, congrats again bro, he bestowed the same honor on me. After consuming some fine sushi and hibachi we shot the shit as usual for a few hours.
At the end of the day though I still spent some quality time with my lady cause that’s what awesome fiancés do. I write this as a reminder to guys to make sure to make some time for your friends. Chances are that you spent a good chunk of your life growing up with them and you should never forget that. Also, it’s a good to vent and reminisce in the good old days. It find it recharges the batteries a little better.
