When I'm With You
One night *cough* a decade or more ago - Amy and I sat at my kitchen table drinking strawberry margaritas and throwing out song lyrics that tickled our brains.
We sang. We told stories. We ran to the interwebs for help.
Fast forward to one night when I was playing a version of Name That Tune on my Facebook page. For the life of me, I couldn't remember the name of this song, any lyrics, or the band. I knew the lead singer was in a couple of one hit wonder hair bands.
That's all I had, so that's all I texted my friend with. In a matter of minutes, after a few faltering text, she had the band name. Then the song title.
Relationship shorthand, it's a beautiful thing.
So yeah, it's a lovely song that evokes heady days of my youth.
Moreover, it reminds me of the beautifully random, decades long conversation I've been having with Amy.
Friendship + Music + Shared Memories = Everything Wonderful
