Dear Friends (New and Old)

Joshua Lane / / 6 Comments

This past weekend, I found myself hanging out with a bunch of couples. I had a great time, but being a single guy, this scenario can get a little depressing after a while (through no fault of their own). Naturally, my mind started to wander to the last few times I was with someone… which was this same time a year ago. It was also around this same time that I met all of those couples I hang out with. And so, I started to reflect on this past year of my life.

In early 2005, I was living (and working) in Frederick, MD. I was also depressed and weighed about 50lbs more than I do now. I was in a rut and I needed to do something drastic to break out of the monotony that had enveloped my life. And in January of 2005, I had decided… I was moving to Philadelphia. It was the best decision I’ve ever made.

And now, here I am… happy.

So, to my dear friends (both new & old), thank you. Thank you for thinking of me when planning weekend activities. Thank you for inviting me to your parties. Thank you for wanting to come visit my new home. Thank you for being there. Thank you for caring. Thank you for changing my life.

Oh jeez… here comes the famous “Lane ego”. That’s the last time I invite you to one of our parties, you stuck up, arrogant bastard.

You know what helps ME break out of a rut? I slash Stan’s tires.

Hmmm… I could use a pick me-up right now!

Awe Josh you’re the sweetest. I don’t have anything funny or witty to say like my clever husband and his boy toy kevin, but i am just so happy to have you as a friend. You add something so unique and different to our circle of friends. It’s not an easy group to get into and I commend the ease and grace you possesed as you dove in head first. YAY JMFL.

Oh jeez! You really are a unique lil treasure Josh (the jew). We really love having you around. Don’t worry about being the “single” guy. That WAS Rob and Pete’s job…until they went and found some girls willing to be close to them. You won’t be single forever, and even if you are…If you get any of us drunk enough, we will probably make out with you despite our significant others. =)

I love you. You are truly and honestly my favorite boy in Philadelphia. :-)

Jason: Someone obviously doesn’t want their birthday present.

Kevin: I’ve been in that car several times… so many missed opportunities!

Liz: *sniff*

Niff: If I’m still single when I hit 30, we’re all getting drunk! That includes you too Kevin ;)

Summer: Take THAT all you other boys in Philadelphia… HA!
