peter and nate: a modern day david and jonathan, major bromance, a meeting of minds, the melding of hearts. they got off on the wrong foot during college due to some misunderstandings and assumptions, but at my urging, let go of grudges and proceeded to become the best of friends.
peter came to visit, and as usual we sit around in between eating and more eating. from nights spent at denny’s in college, to our post-friday night debriefings where we lived the high life drinking the high life and working our way through a bag of flamin hot cheetos, we do little else. not much has changed, and in the span of four days, we consumed: frozen pizza, chips, a total of 12 tacos and 1 burrito, cheesesteaks, fries, new york style pizza, chick-fil-a, fried appetizers, pub-style sandwiches and homestyle fries, cupcakes and artisan chocolates, more cheesesteaks and new york style pizza, slurpees, ice cream, pho and more cheesesteaks.
it is rare that people find great friendship. unshakable loyalty and unwavering connection, void of jealousy, the ability to celebrate with and mourn with, an appreciation of, outrageous laughter and unhindered trust. i’ve seen few friendships so lucid, it is a gift.
