When a friend REALLY makes you laugh, do you snort? Do you giggle? Make funny noises? Don’t you love how laughing with a girlfriend makes you ‘drop your stress?’
It’s Day 8 of our 12 Days of Friendship and we’re celebrating funny friends and the wonderful gift of laughter with the women who make us laugh on a regular basis!
What do you get when you combine fabulous drag queens, ugly Christmas Sweaters and girlfriends? A hilarious evening with friends!
My friend Penny gathered up a mini-van of girlfriends this past Sunday night for ‘Gay Bingo.’ It’s a hilarious fund-raiser for Carecole – a local non-profit that cares for families with HIV/AIDS. From the hilarious drag queen Bingo-caller (with a FABULOUS wig that ‘she’ insisted was NOT a wig! Can you pick ‘her’ out in the photo above?!), to the ugly Christmas sweater contest (yes, I got one at Goodwill to wear and congrats to Penny for being a winner!), to forcing me to sing ‘Jingle Bells’ solo while collecting dollars for Carecole – it was a scream!
The friendship ‘gifts’ of the night? I got to know Penny’s girlfriends a little better. I’ve seen them all before, but now we’ve shared laughter – the kind that we’ll laugh even more about in the future. I had a fabulous, funny, memorable evening with the girls – a night away from stress or worries, thoughts about the dang holiday card that is not designed much less created yet, or any other holiday stress. It was a gift – of laughter with girlfriends!
Even if your week is hectic (whose isn’t, right?!), take some time for laughter with your girlfriends over the holidays. Find something funny to do like watch a Holiday movie (we’ve got a great Must-See Top 10 Romantic Holiday Movies list!), stop your busy schedule for a coffee or glass of wine together, bake some cookies – together, call up a long-distance friend to share your holidays – just make an effort to connect, they’ll appreciate it and you.
And come back tomorrow as we continue our 12 days of Friendship with a special reminder we all need during the holidays.
