The Tools of True Friendship

I've studied in museums, discussed art in galleries, been on both sides of the curtain at theatres, have an encyclopedic knowledge of classic films, debated politics at caucuses, discussed theology with bishops, attended every major sporting venue, and I can discuss, sing, and identify all genres of music. I've golfed, hunted, fished, canoed, and gambled with money I could & couldn't afford to lose. I've eaten with my hands and I've sat staid so I wouldn't break fine china with apprehensive breaths. But nothing beats a beer, a buddy, a quiet garage, & a bolt that won't tighten.

I love the comfortable silence of true friendship.
