Got a soul-mate and/or a best friend? What is it about that person that you love best? Describe them in great detail — leave no important quality out.
I know that when you’re in a relationship with somebody, there’s an expectation for you to write about them and explain how they are your soul mate and your best friend… but I don’t really want to do that… Don’t get me wrong, I could easily write about him, but I choose not too simply of of sheer defiance.
Instead, I’ll talk about my other soul mate – Crazy Cat Lady.
We have been working together for a few years now, and developed a great relationship / friendship. She’s one of those people who just gets me. If I turn up to work and she’s not there, then I feel rather depressed. Without her there, I have nobody to really talk to, or interact with. She’s the one that allows me to be neurotic and random. And I know that I do the same with her. I guess you could call it separation anxiety.
I’ve been away from work for the past week, and when I returned the other day, some of the other staff had commented how unhappy she had been feeling, and how much she had missed me. She is also just as random as I am, and when you’re so used to having that particular type of daily interaction with somebody, it’s something that helps get you through the day; it helps to subdue the rage; it’s something that we both look forward to, and also miss terribly when the other is not at work.
I found out today that Crazy Cat Lady has a few weeks of annual leave coming up, and it only really hit home this evening that she’s not going to be around. It’s undoubtedly going to be quite a hard few weeks to get through because I’ll have nobody to be random with. I’ll have nobody to talk gibberish too. I’ll have nobody to be neurotic with. I guess I can find solace in knowing that although she’ll be away, she’ll still be checking her email, and she’ll continue to forward me links from her newsreader – usually videos about cats or something.
She really is one of my best friends, and I can’t imagine not having her in my life.
