2. Undaunting support: Whether or not I'm around to hear them take my side, they always TAKE MY SIDE. They don't throw me under a bus or publicly humiliate me. Men, beware! Don't take complaints about your wife's quirks to us. We'll just toss back your own...ahem!...shortcomings for you to consider!
3. Understanding my serious moments: You know that old song, Laugh, Clown, Laugh? Yeah, well, even someone who finds humor in everything goes through gray days or experiences hurt feelings every once in a while. My friends never tell me I'm full of crap or I deserve to be slapped down. They offer hugs...and raspberry margaritas. Unlimited and unconditionally.
