Are you tired of those sissy “friendship” poems that always sound good, but never actually come close to reality? Well , here is a series of promises that actually speak of true friendship. You will see no cutesy little smiley faces - just the stone cold truth of our great friendship.

1. When you are sad -- I will jump on the person who made you sad, like a spider monkey jacked up on Mountain Dew!

2. When you are blue -- I will try to dislodge whatever it is that is choking you.

3. When you smile -- I will know you are plotting something that I must be involved in.

4. When you are scared -- we’ll both high tail it out of here.

5. When you are worried -- I will tell you horrible stories about how much worse it could be until you quit whining…ya big baby!

6. When you are confused -- I will use small words.

7. When you are sick -- stay away from me until you are well again. I don’t want whatever it is that you have.

8. When you fall -- I’ll pick you up and dust you off.

This is my oath…I pledge it to the end.

“Why?” you may ask -- because you are my FRIEND!

Friendship is like peeing your pants, Everyone can see it,But only you can feel the true warmth.

Well what did you expect, I am home sick and under the influence of cold medicine......
