I don’t know about you guys, but I miss my family. Not the family that is currently crowded into my (thankfully reasonably large) house.
No, I’m talking about the extended family. Friends from high school and film school and law school. The writer and reader friends from over the last twenty years of this awesome career. (Taking a moment here to once again be amazed that I am blessed to make a living by sharing the people who live in my head.) All the awesome folks I’m not seeing in person this year because my travel scheduled has been reduced to nada, unless you count virtual hanging out, which (in case you hadn’t noticed) really isn’t the same.
Mostly, though, I miss my Friend Spouses.
What, you ask, are Friend Spouses? They are those friends who rise to the top to become the cream of the friendship bucket. The ones who know you as well (or better!) than your actual spouse or significant other.
ICYMI, I talk about Friend Spouses in my most recent column over at Frolic! Head on over and check it out!
