I love people who make me laugh. I honestly think it's the thing I like the most, to laugh. It cures a multitude of ills. It's probably the most important thing in a person. -Audrey Hepburn

Rerun: This post originally ran in August 2011 and since that time, the woman featured in this post has become one of my nearest and dearest friends. I’ve even been Coyote Watching in her backyard. And most of the time, I no longer mistake her for a 12 year old girl.

Let’s review what just occurred to me, but first a quick refresher:

I work from home. I’ve let go of the idea of key personal hygiene habits happening anytime before 4pm. My diet is crap and needs improvement. Today, I’ve got several windows open in the house so it’s a bit chilly in here. The window of my office looks out onto the front yard of which anyone needs to pass by on their way to our front door. Also, we’ve recently moved and I’m trying desperately to find new friends. Ideally moms in the neighborhood that like to drink enjoy a mommy’s night now & again, be themselves, trash talk their amazing lives as moms and appear to be just all around good, funny people.

So where to start….It’s about lunch time so I decide I’m going to heat up the leftover lo mien from the fridge. I realize it’s about a week old, ponder whether I’m going to vomit profusely or die upon eating it, but throw it in the microwave regardless.
