Thinking of Megan

So today, as with most days, I find my mind wandering when I'm supposed to be getting down to business. And today, same as yesterday, I'm thinking about my best friend.

The one who has been my best friend since I was 10.

The one who couldn't be with me on the 28th because she lives in Boise, Idaho - too many thousands of miles away.

The one who always, always gives the right advice, who thinks nothing of telling me I'm being an ass when I'm being an ass, the girl I'd like my girl to know, really know, because damn, she'd be a better, more colorful person for it.

I'm thinking about Megan.

We spoke sometime around the time I gave birth, I know, because there is no way I'm going through something major without talking to Meg at least once. The Varmint confirmed this. I was so jacked up on meds, however, I can barely remember what was said. The morphine was still coursing through my veins when we spoke.

Since then, it's been a whirlwind, with life going all topsy-turvy and us just trying to hang on. I haven't been able to call since, and I'm dying to gab about everything with her, find out what she was thinking when she had her son, Joshua, tell her my craziest thoughts, get updated on what's happening in her universe now, and just re-ground myself. We need to sync up.

Because that's how it is with us. Meg's always been solid ground for me, which is sort of funny when you consider that between the two of us, she's always been the high-flying, by-the-seat-of-her-pants, glamazon with a flair for drama girl.

Meg's got star appeal. Which brings me to missing her. And missing her daily. And missing her even more right now, because so I desperately want her to be that regular, high-flying, by-the-seat-of-her-pants, glamazon with a flair for drama girl-influence on my daughter.

In my opinion, every girl needs one. And trust me when I say there'd be no better, more Auntie Mame-style influence on my kid than Megan.

Damn, I'm wishin' you were here, Megs.
