Guest Posting day 2: Jerrod

This second guest poster is one of the most genuinely nice guys I've ever had the opportunity to speak with. Normally I'd say that "nice guy" is like a death sentence, but in this case it's clearly an exception to the rule. His real life posts on blind dates and drive-through employees are hilarious, and even though he's clearly frustrated, he can still find the humor in those situations. Not to mention he was a killer four year old Mr. T. Please welcome Jerrod, from The Yellow Factor:


Let me start off by stating that when I asked Aly to pick a topic, this was probably the one I wanted to do the least. Being habitually single leaves only the relationships that have expired. Past tense. Some good, mostly bad relationships where you are left thinking "What the hell was that?". Those that read me know about my single life...the blind date characters I've endured.

This post will be different. This is a post about the girls that I don't have to impress and they are always with me. This post is about a group of friends. Randomness about some truly great girls. You know, the ones that don't expect anything more from you than your laugh and smile.


The friend that vents to you about serious stuff. They have others to confide in but they choose you.

The friend that knows you the most and despite that information, still hangs around.

The friend that convinces you that someone particular Saran wrapped your car... to the point of helping you get revenge on that person's car.... then confesses that she was in fact responsible in the first place. Mastermind.

The friend that you text with while you're both in the backseat on a road trip. Texting because actual audio conversation has been denied by the driver who just so happens to be out of her mind.

The friend that looks for your shoulder. No matter the time.

The friend that can make a day road trip so fun simply by the music played and how it is sung in the car.

The friend that believes in you so much more than you do yourself.

The friend that got you watching TV shows that you thought you would never ever watch. Ever. Spencer is such a tool, by the way. Whatever.

The friend that can quote TV and movies with you on the spot, just to break up the boring work day.

The friend you know that you will do absolutely anything to make sure she is happy. Absolutely anything.

The friend that you don't have to worry about intentions with. You just be.

I was told a bit ago that I have such heart for my friends. I may be picky with relationships but one thing I know is that I've got some great friends in my corner. The kind you will protect with your life. Now if they would only introduce me to one of their single friends.... jerks.

Friends that you can 'just be' with are the best. Sometimes you meet someone for the first time and immediately know they fit that category.

Saran?!

Mr London Street said...

It's clingfilm Mo, and any friend who can clingfilm a car is not to be messed with.

Secretia said...

Friends, the best kind, that you can talk spontaneously with, without practicing what you want to say!

Secretia

Stacie's Madness said...

That's beautiful!

Mr. Condescending said...

Jerrod, maybe pick up a foreign girl? One that can't speak english the best.

I'm not kidding, like maybe a hot asian or a brazilian girl?

chiefy already stole my comment. however, this was very sweet! loved it. we could all use a friend like you!

Lola Lakely said...

I feel exactly the same way. I've been perpetually single, partly because I run away from commitment and partly because I give all of my love and loyalty to my friends. They are always there no matter what and I'd do anything for them.

I bet you're sick of hearing this but awwwwwwwww...you're like a cutesy wutesy baby bear! Awwww....

Jesus H. Christ? Was than an iCarly reference? Please tell me I'm wrong, and then put a bullet in my head for knowing that there's a character named Spencer on iCarly.

Also, since everyone's heaping praises on you, I thought I'd point out your shortcomings: namely, that your boobs aren't nearly as nice as I imagine Aly's to be.

Eric said...

Jerod, like Mr. C was asking, do you have two Brazilian girlfriends?

That's a lot of girlfriends...

Rita said...

J-Rod,
I wish I had as many guy friends as you have girl friends. Sadly things always seem to get all muddied up in cross gender friendships with me. You are one lucky man to have found friends like that. I am most impressed with Saran Wrap Mastermind friend- awesome.

otherworldlyone said...

You are awesome and your friends sound awesome.

I'd totally help YOU Saran wrap a car, BTW.

Judearoo said...

MLS - exactly man. Exactly.

Miss - don't go soft on me Chief.

Secretia - nothing better than that.

Stacie - thanks. Got a pretty good group.

Mr C - wouldn't that get annoying thought? All the jib jab?

Becky - awww. Thanks.

Lola - I'm picking up what you're putting down.

Erin - hey E.... Glad you stopped by.

Mjenks - you are right. I'm a negative A cup. Nobody wants to see that.

Eric - two just covers all my bases.

Rita - missed you!

Owo - you made me do this. I'll get you back.

Judearoo - gorgeous? You don't know the half of it..
