A man has a friend, period. He acquires this particular friend because they both like to hunt ducks. The fact that the friend discourses entirely in four-letter words, very seldom washes, chews tobacco and spits and random, is drunk a good deal of the time and hates women, in no way affects the friendship. If the man notices these flaws in the perfection of his friend, he notices them casually as he does his friend's height, the color of his eyes, the width of his shoulders; and the friendship continues at an even temperature for years and years and years."
sooooo much truth, it's killing me

1. Red Lipstick, if I can do it, you can do it....
(oh ya and check out this amazing night Jo did for us, hence the occasion to wear red lipstick, you'll love it)
2. You've already proven you can do this one. What is up with saying you cant?!
3. We all know you've pulled that one off before. And might I say you did so in quite a classy manner.
4. I've still got those purple high heels in the closet you bought and wore once upon a time.
