Here's To My Best Friend...Schmoop

Cheeeeeeeeers and Happy Monday Bitches!!

This is a special week here in the Bagwine digs.  This Thursday will mark the 13th Anniversary of me, the Matt-Man, meeting my best friend of all time.

So, let’s kick this this week off with a smile, shall we?

Otay…

I am a smart ass.  I can be smarmy and intolerable.  I can be a complete asshole if the sixteen-sided dice of God’s play on D&D rolls just right, but actually?

While I do admit to being a sarcastic smartass, the
other stuff?

Eh…I may come off as being intolerable from time to time, but for the most part, I am just a simple guy, with simple needs, and one of those needs is friendship.

And in all honesty, even if I do appear to be an smarmy asshole to you…

I wouldn’t be intolerable, smarmy, nor even talking to you today, if it weren’t for the friendship I garnered from a woman whom I moved in with, thirteen years ago…

Literally, yes literally Jayman, and others, I don’t know at which rest stop I’d be sleeping if weren’t for the Schmoopster.

Schmoop, aka Beth, allowed me into her home some thirteen years ago while she herself was trying to spiral up from a downward trend in her life.  Even only quasi-knowing me through my sister, she opened up her home to me, and afforded me a place to stay.

And then…She made the mistake of feeding me, and some few months later with pastrami hanging from my wet mouth while watching an episode of The Red Green Show, she told me that she loved me, and I, upon wiping the mayo from my mouth with my sleeve said…

“I love you too.”

It was the weirdest thing because, I had never thought about this thing called love with Schmoop, and I don’t think she had either, yet she said it, and I reciprocated without a linger, hesitation, or second thought.

I am not a believer in pre-destination, nor the Arabic belief of kismet, but let me tell you, moving in with Schmoop lo those thirteen years ago was out of the blue and the best thing that ever happened to me in my adult life…and for that, I am grateful.

We get along, and well, if one has that, they are way ahead of the game.

Schmoop hates that I talk so much, yet laughs at what I say.  I hate it that she is not a “people person”, but love it when she does take a liking to someone.  She hates waking up on Sunday mornings to me cursing Paul Piatt’s latest bad take, and yet…

She loves the IWS Radio Show, and even more so, she hopes it will lead to something big for Jay and I.

I guess the glue that holds Schmoop and I together is that we just want to be able to sit down at the end of day, and no matter what has happened at work, with our families, or between us, clink a can of beer in cheers with our best friend.

We do that every night, and I hope to do the same thing until the day I die.

Here’s wishing a Happy 13th Anniversary to my best friend Schmoop, and to a woman who will always be the love of my life.

Cheers!!
