There are a load of things I could tell you about my friendship with Jo-Ann. I could tell you about how we met when I joined Kiwanis and how we knew immediately that we were destined to be friends. I could tell you about the time I asked her for a ride when I hardly knew her at all but I just knew she wouldn’t mind. I could tell you about our mutual love of sushi and good beer and knitting. I could tell you that she has agreed to serve as my secretary when I take over the role of Kiwanis president this October – something she swore she would never do again. I could even tell you about how we have traveled together on this weight loss and exercise journey of ours. But I think I can show you, with two simple photos, just exactly why we are friends.
Here we are at the Kiwanis 65th Anniversary Gala.
And here we are, just a week later, tailgating at Jimmy Buffett.
She gets me. She gets me when I’m proper and serious and dressed up. And she gets me when I’m inappropriate and silly and dressed like a pirate. I get her, too.
And that’s why she’s my bestie.
