Why I Don’t Have Neighbor Friends

September 19, 2012 · 31 comments

You guys know Jamie.

My little peanut/Ray Charles/running buddy.

She was the first friend I made in Virginia Beach other than girls from work.

She was the one who I met through blogging, yet we are from rival high schools in New Jersey and played against each other on the same field hockey field.

She was my gym buddy before I quit the gym.

She’s the one who will come over for wine and an ab workout. Our minds work the same way.

And she’s the one I went running with last week, candy corn in our matching Lulu speed shorts (we’re so cool).

And she’s the girl who admitted as we approached mile 4 that T. Swift’s new jam was rocking her world. To which I said, “MEEEEE TOOOOO” and promptly played it from my iPhone.

And as we ran, we jammed. With no conversation of ever seeing the music video, we did a synchronized jumped in the air, arms up, at the “WEEE-EEEE!” part of the chorus.

That part.

Mid-run. On the sidewalk.

This whole scenario might explain why none of my neighbors want to be my friend.

Wine and ab workouts sound like a magical combination!
If I was your neighbor I would totally be friends with you (I love candy corn, and running, and cheesy pop music)!

I wish we could jam to that song together. When I’m in my car, I seriously change the radio station every two seconds to any radio station that might possibly play that song.

But what’s up with the animal costumes? I don’t get it.

Every one at school says I remind them of sweet Tay Tay. Every one at school hates Taylor Swift. Maybe this is why I have no friends at school? At least we have each other.

TOLD YOU. You are my little Tay Tay. And I love you anyway.

I’m freaking ob-sessed with T-Swift’s new jam!! I have a gift of ruining music for others (so gifted that my college roommate made a CD for her boyfriend titled, “songs sarah’s ruined for me”) and you better believe I’m playing this one into the ground!
