Hey my friend, had a rough day? Let’s sit and you can tell me about it. Of course, you don’t have to. We could just sit outside and smoke a cigar together. We could listen to a little music – or play some. We could do something else entirely. Something to eat? Or hey, drink some water. No, don’t get up – I’ll get it for you. That’s what friends are for.
Then let’s just talk a while. If the conversation goes to that, I’m all for it. If you just need a little reminder that there’s someone to listen, I’m glad to have done it. Maybe it’ll be more; maybe you’ll want some real advice, or even a hand with something. Maybe it’ll be something big. Don’t worry if it is. It could be a glass of water or helping you move across the country, I’m here either way. That’s what friends are for.
Of course, it might not come to that. It might not come to anything. We all have rough days. They’re like snowflakes – no two are exactly alike. Enough of them will bury you. But while they’re falling, a few extra hands will keep your pathway through them clear. You’ve got at least one extra pair of hands right here any time you need them.
That’s what friends are for.
