 Are you a “look at my ring” friend?

Every girl needs one.  Every girl should be one.

Are you a “I hate my haircut” friend?

A “I’m feeling fat” friend?

A “let’s have tea” friend?

Are you a “pee with the door open” friend?

A “bring a bottle of wine and share my leftovers” friend?

A “tell me that I’m cool” friend?

Are you a “can I borrow a pair of shoes” friend?

A “go along with my crazy scheme” friend?

A “my house is your house” friend?

Are you a “put my kids on the bus” friend?

A “bring my son to the pool” friend?

Are you a “trust you with the lives of my children” friend?

A “send flowers cause I’m proud of you” friend?
