Last Saturday I attended Sandra’s lifelong friend’s bachelorette party. Desiree is getting married in two weeks and I only see her for functions like Sandra’s wedding and baby showers. She did visit Sandra a few times at A&M as well but although she is someone I don’t know very well, I like her a lot. Desiree is very sweet and kind in a way that most people give up on sometime during college. She will do great things and I will hear about them through my friend and that is really what a good “friend of a friend” is.
Every one of my friends has a friend that I enjoy hearing their life updates through my friend, but they are not my good friend. I think it is the same kind of curiousnes that comes with reading a stranger’s blog. I don’t know them personally, but I like to hear that things are going well for them or hear they just took a really cool trip (I always enjoy hearing about a good trip).
Friend of friends are characters in the lives of my closest friends. Their involvement in my friend’s lives make up a big part of my close friend’s lives because they are their close friends. Point is: I am fascinated by the friends of others and Sandra’s friend serves as an example to that. If you followed any of this, I’m impressed.
