“Would you shut the fuck up for a minute?”
That was my good friend Scott at a bar in Naperville last night.
We always get there early for these monthly gatherings so we can bullshit a bit before the rest of our former co-workers arrive and the conversation travels elsewhere.
He tells me to shut the fuck up. I laugh out loud. Then we toast to whatever.
That’s what we have. It’s unbelievably cool.
Do you have a good friend like Scott? I hope you do.
We’re creative, but in different ways. We talk about our families and friends and movies and books and pop culture. We don’t talk about work. Because it’s boring and mostly a distraction from what we’re Meant to Be Doing with Our Lives.
We talk about everything and nothing and it always goes by too quickly.
The best part about spending time with Scott is that I always, always learn something new about myself.
The time we spend is precious. Each minute is a gift.
Do me a favor, would ya please?
Call your Scott. Tell him you love him. Do it today.
