Best Friends

This time I chose the quote  

Sometimes when we are generous in small, barely detectable ways it can change someone else’s life forever.

Margaret Cho, weblog, 03-11-04
Best friends
Martha  dunked her doughnut into her drink then angrily bit off a  large chunk. I tried not to smile as a rivulet of coffee made its way down her bare arm.  “How could he lead me on like that?” she grumbled through her mouth full of boston crème “all men are pigs!”
Although she and I have been best friends since second grade she  has never looked at me as an available male, just as her buddy.
“Pity” I thought as I fought the urge to  kiss the powdered sugar that clung to her lips..

    She’s “write” you know. We are all pigs! But in the nicest possible way.
