It’s a right of passage for the male relationship. That dreaded call or text. At what point is your relationship to a point where you are comfortable to reply with a “you bet!”.
At what point are you able to SEND such a message. These situations all come back to a Seinfeld episode, it would seem. Jerry equates it with “going all the way” in the male/male platonic relationship. In the last several weeks some, of my “best friends” have moved households. I am SOMEWHAT torn and “concerned” about the status of these relationships, as neither of my buddies have asked me to help them move.
Relieved? You bet! But, what gives?
I thought we were at “THAT POINT” in our respective friendships that I would have received “the call”.
So that does sort take the rose off the bloom of excitement of learning they had both hired professional movers. I definitely won’t be asking these two friends to help me move any time soon, either. Sigh.
In Quebec, July 1st is “Moving Day” as many (it used to be all) apartment leases expire on Canada Day. Can you imagine the bedlam? The friends you would have coming out of the wood work, would be immeasurable. The pizza and beer proprietors are already counting their money from 2016’s moving day, on Friday.
What are YOU doing this weekend? Don’t be afraid to answer; I am not moving ANY time soon!
