The adventures of L-Ron: “But nowadays, due to circumstances beyond my control…:

I can’t believe it took me three days to read Lauren’s blog post about our friendship, but it was the perfect way to wake up after 14 hours of sleep. That night on the beach was two months ago, but I still clearly remember picking up Lauren’s clothes and accessories off the beach and taking them home to wash. I checked my phone this morning and saw that I must have sleep-talked with Anne at 9:30PM and then Lauren at at 2:30AM. I don’t know what we talked about, but I hope I told them both how much I love them.

I love you, Lauren. I love you, Anne. We’re going to have a great weekend together!

Have you ever met someone and knew immediately that you were going to be best friends? That your friendship was an absolute and the lack of it an impossibility?

That happened the night we went skinny dipping in Gwangalli beach. After getting drunk sipping from dixie cups full of strawberry soda and soju and making precarious sexual gestures towards Stacy with my bottle of Woodford Reserve, we walked to the beach. This was the first night I met Anne. And I can’t remember if I was the one who suggested we go skinny dipping, but I’m going with my gut instinct and saying “most likely, it was.”

Stacy ran around like the Coppertone baby, Anne took embarrassing photos of us (hopefully never to be seen by human eyes again,) and I giggled like a school girl. Then the beach patrol police rolled up on us in their ATVS or something and shined their lights on us. Like unassuming waygooks, we just giggled and nodded our heads. I don’t think that stopped us from going back in 3 or 4 times, though I’m pretty positive Anne stayed out of the water after the 2nd time they bothered us. In a drunken haze, I hastily left to procure the human necessities of food and water (though I’d hardly categorize McDonald’s as food..) Anne sat on the beach with others, contemplating whether the presence of every article of clothing I wore that night strewn about in the sand, even my accessories, indicated I had gone home naked. (Don’t worry, Mom.. You’ll be pleased to know I had brought a change of clothes with me ;D)

Anyhow, it was on that balmy night where I met one of my most amazing friends ever, and got closer to another. These two ladies are the Hall to my Oates, the aloe to my soju, and the Lotte to my giants. That’s right, how’s that for cheesiness? Regardless, I love these two ladies “sideways,” as Anne would say, and feel so lucky to have them as part of my life. I can’t wait to make more ridiculous memories with them.
