The Things That Stay With You

· My best friend Jamie is terrified of the song “Mairzy Doats”. She told this once years ago, and for some reason it’s filed away in my brain under Useless Bits – Do Not Delete.

· One drunken college night, my dear friend Em turned to me and said (read: slurred) with utter sincerity, “You have really great eyebrows.” It was one of the nicest compliments I’ve ever received, and about the only thing I remember from that night.

· My best friend in 3rd grade was Carrie B. She transferred to another school the next year, and we didn’t see each other again until high school – even then it was in passing, and that was over 10 years ago – but I still remember her phone number.

· The only thing I can remember from Physics my senior year of high school:

I don’t even know that it means, but thank you, Mr. Burkhalter.

· My high school friend Angie T.’s favorite word is “plethora”. She used it in every HS paper she ever wrote.

LOL, my cousin says plethora all the time, I think it might be her favorite word too. I'm actually surprised she uses it correctly because she isn't known for her high vocabulary if you know what I mean.

My best friend in high school said plethora all the time, too! What a small world.
