Six Years ‘Till Thirty!

The first time I can remember meeting our dear Erica was on my 20th birthday. I was very very drunk (as it should be) and she was dropping in on the party with a certain Miss Baynes. To be perfectly honest, I almost spit my yucka across the room because I thought she was an ex that I’d had a rocky break-up with. Erica’s double (who also happens to be named Erica) had been stalking me for a few months and I thought she was using my birthday to kick things up a notch. To my pleasant surprise, she was not Erica M. (my ex), but Erica D – not there to stalk me, just there to partake in the yucka like any red-blooded UPS student. That said, I was still creeped out and pretty much avoided her for the next 10-12 months.

Who knew that such an amazing friendship could grow out of fear, drunkenness, and mistaken identity?

Happy Birthday Beautiful

PS - My original plan was to write you a poem
But my brain was too tired by the time I got home
Yet another occasion where I turn up lame
But the best part about you is that I know you’ll love me just the same.

Happy Birthday Erica! I think the first time I met you was during the Vagina Monologues in 2001? I think I remember wondering, `who is that girl who Jolie always hangs out with? Is she in the cast and I am just spacing???` =)

Hey Erica. Just stopping by to wish you happy birthday. I miss you lots. You're the most beautiful girl in the world and I will always think of you when I'm eating doggy chow with strippers. Those were good times weren't they? Love ya, darling!
