Friendship Is Like A Pair Of Jeans...
Okay I have come to the realization that friendships can be compared to a pair of jeans. Here goes.
In the beginning you buy a pair of jeans. They are great, you where them all the time and they become comfortable and worn in. As time passes those jeans that were once a perfect fit become slightly snug. Then later on, they become too tight and uncomfortable in all the "wrong" places. Even though these jeans don't suit you, you still hold on hoping that one day they will fit like they once did. The day comes that those jeans are put in the Good Will pile and you never see them again...unless you shop at the Good Will for something and you happen to see them in passing.
BUT once in a blue moon you truly do find the "Perfect Jeans". They go with everything and they fit like a glove. Even if you gain a few pounds, they seem to be forgiving. They go with a nice blouse and boots and a crappy old tshirt and tennies. These are the ones you keep forever.
