Sadly, my bestie had long since moved away when the movie Bridesmaids came out. I watched it alone, per usual, and when I saw the airplane scene I instantly shouted, “OH MY GOD! THAT IS ALLISON!” I can’t prove it, but I’m pretty sure Kristen Wiig based her character on Alli.
Bestie texting requires no transitions. In fact, in the bestie world one can surmise exactly what the other one is doing with zero segues. Also note besties rarely answer the previous text. It makes no sense which simultaneously makes it awesome.
Alli’s infamous back bend that occurred at (a very crowded) SIX bar in Austin. It is one of the most hilarious moments we’ve ever shared that shall be emblazoned in my brain for all eternity. Since it is such a meaningful memory, I decided to recreate it using a very powerful medium of artistic expression. Enjoy.
Back-story: Well, it’s a little complicated. Allison had an awesome short haircut for many many billions of years. I found an old wig and spoofed her look. That’s pretty much it. So, not very complicated after all.
I’ve finally decided to write that book I’ve always been talking about writing about. It will focus on the epic adventures that bind me and my bestie together for all eternity in the goofy and nonsensical ways in which besties are intertwined. (Disclaimer: No twine was harmed during the writing of this book.)
My book is dedicated to everyone who has a bestie or has recently purchased one via the Interweb. I’ll share the laughter, the tears, the tears due to laughter and the laughter due to tears that me and my longtime besties have experienced. It’s the epic journey of
faith, sarcasm, extreme, extremities, delusions, hallucinations, tenderness, chicken tenders, enlightenment, perspicacity, fortunatelessness….okay, I made that last one up. It’s about us.
