I would like to introduce you to my friend HEATHER...
Heather is amazing. She is funny. She is super intelligent and successful. I taught her how to use eyeshadow two weeks ago and yet she looks exactly like Cameron Diaz. (I know I can't.) But most importantly, Heather is a great friend. Just yesterday, Heather, ever so kindly, accompanied me for something that 100% freaked me out. Stressed and drained, we grabbed a quick bite after so I was able to still catch that last Bootcamp class, before I began teaching again Tuesday evening. As I wrote here:
I was finishing HELL WEEK, again, and was fitting in the ONLY class I could take before teaching Tuesday night. I get in the car, drive down the street and get a call from Heather.
"HI? I just left you."
"Um, can you help me? I ran out of gas."
"What does that mean."
"I'm on Melrose I ran out of gas."
"I'm confused, who runs out of gas?"
"I'm telling you, I'm on Melrose. I ran out of gas."
"HOW DO YOU NOT HAVE GAS."
I look up La Cienega towards Bootcamp... I look down Melrose towards my friend in distress... I head down Melrose knowing HELL WEEK was over. Day 2. She would do the same for me - THOUGH - I also wouldn't run out of gas. (OK. FULL DISCLOSURE: Totally ran out of gas once...) As a genius person I admire once said "In order to have a friend you have to be a friend." That person was TOTS me and it was 100% my 1st Grade Oratorical Faire speech in about 1985. But dude, how smart - right!?
Because I was SO pleased with Heather, I decided to document the 40 mins of pure HEAVEN I spent with this girl. She wanted to approve the pics and videos before they posted... I say - SUCK IT.
