(I have) The greatest best cousin-friend in the world. Seriously. Even when I have to vent and will not SHUT MY PIEHOLE, she doesn't turn and scream at me like most people would, "OH FOR THE LOVE OF CHEESE, SHUT YOUR MOUTH, WOMAN!"
And this is a good thing.
Anyway. I am lucky enough to have a few people that I can be blatently transparent with. And I have used and abused them over the past couple of months.
Thank God they've stuck.
