I was just reading a comment left on a blog from my old roomie. I decided to dedicate an ENTIRE post to her, so she will know how much she is enjoyed, loved, and should never feel "left out". Sorry if it embarrasses her, but everyone needs to be spotlighted once in a while.
When I graduated from high school, not so many years ago, I went straight to BYU. I had never been on my own, I didn't even like to spend the night at friends houses. My new "roommate" drove up to Boise to pick me and my junk up, and drove me all the way to our new home in the projects of Provo. I was a big time nerd, who had no clue about living on her own. I was depressed, I wasn't really wanting to go to college yet. As soon as we got to our new home, she helped me move everything in. She made me feel like it was OUR place, and took me right away all around the apartment complex to introduce me to everyone she knew. Never once did she make me feel like I was just her lame cousin she HAD to hang out with. I had the best summer ever living with her. She protected me from the creepy double date we met on the freeway. We wrote a killer song for a family reunion...."Grandma Bailey" sung to the tune of Vanilla Ice's "Ice Ice Baby". It was a hit for sure. We had many nights staying up laughing, mostly making fun of all of you, but it was super fun. She was very generous and shared all her cool stuff with me, even though I had nothing cool to share with her. The only thing she never let me use was her pillow case with her boyfriends picture on it, but I understood, some things are just off limits. When my mom came to visit, she offered her bed to her, which I really should have done because it was MY mom, but I was not that bright, and Anna slept on the floor. We annoyed the crap out of our other two roommates, who had been good friends with Anna before I got there. And she never acted like she cared. She was always so loyal to her nerdy cousin. She ended up moving back home at the end of the summer. But, she was nice enough to come up and visit me the next year. I spent another 2 years living in those projects, and none of them could ever compare to that first summer.
Even though she probably won't want to be friends with me anymore after she sees the awesome picture I am posting, I will ALWAYS be her friend, and total BCF.
This was us, the weekend of our debut album, "Grandma Bailey".
