Admit it. We all have head friends or friends that exist only in our heads. (Don’t deny it. You know it’s true!) It might be a famous movie star or sports figure; heck, it could be anybody. The thing is nobody knows we are friends…not even the person with which we say we are friends. But, we have regular visits with this friend on a regular basis…in our heads.
My “head” friend is Ed O’ Neil. You know, he plays the role of Jay Pritchet on the popular television show Modern Family. Ed and I go way back! We go all the way back to when I was in college the first time about 100 years ago. We were in the play Private Lives by the play write Noel Coward. Of course, he had a major role and mine was minor, but that is where our long-term friendship began. It was sometime in the late 1970’s when we first met at the Youngstown Playhouse in Youngstown, Ohio.
In my head, Ed and I are friends. We are friends because I always tell people that I know him. I tell people that Ed and I were in that play together a million years ago. He also attended the same university as I attended.
And, to add a little credibility to my story I always add, “And I still have the play program too!”
The show keeps Ed busy these days, so we don’t manage to get together very often. Heck, we don’t get together at all. I am sure that in the “real world” he doesn’t even remember who I am. Then I think, “Why wouldn’t he remember? Would he forget that he had a lead role in that play before he was famous?” So in my head, he remembers.
However, if he did remember, and we did manage to get together with our families, I would treat him as if I would treat any family member I had not seen in a while. I would invite him into my home and prepare him one of the best Italian dinners he has ever had!
My husband says that if Ed comes to dinner, he wants Sophia Vergara to come with him. I guess she is my husband’s head friend. 🙂
Next time I will write about my other “head” friend, Oprah Winfrey.
Today’s card is a Thank You card that I made using the Watercolor Thank You stamp set. I am liking the look of vellum on cards these days! It might be difficult for you to see, but I stamped onto the card stock in Whisper White craft ink using one of the Gorgeous Grunge stamps before I added the vellum. The thank you sentiment is heat embossed with white embossing powder.
Thanks for stopping by today. Hope you enjoyed your visit. Until next time…
