I am truly blessed to have amazing friends….
My friends have been with me through thick and thin – I would love to bring up something I have learnt about certain friends. Some of my friends are very spontaneous with what they say…. one particular friend is very random with what she says!
I chose this particular friend (whose arm you can see in the above photo) to accompany me to the V8’s in Sydney late last year – I had realised another friend (who happens to be Bundy’s owner) was going to be in Sydney at the same time…. my friend has a beautiful black Labrador who she was missing. So she asked Tex (who I’ve mentioned here) if she could take Bundy for a walk…. Bundy is the most popular Australian Cattle Dog (Blue) wherever she goes so my friend got the stares as well. Her words, and I quote these verbatim, were, “Dogs are such chick magnets – if I were a lesbian, I would be set!”….. me and a couple of our mutual friends just lost it there and then. That was a totally random moment – felt so embarrassed….. this was on the Sunday.
On the Friday (our hot lap day), we had another spontaneous moment – I told my friend I swore during my hot lap…. my friend proceeded to tell me that she had to pull a wedgie out of her pants under her race suit. I just lost it – you kinda don’t bring that sort of stuff up in public! That night, we had the best day one debrief: a long chat, lots of drinks and dinner.
These are the things that make me realise I have the most awesome friends….. and you know what? I wouldn’t change it for the world – and I dedicate this Susan McCann song to those friends who mean the world to me:
