Friendship is a strong bond, and one that has lasted for over 20 years requires you to take action for the other person at times.

This is one of those times.

While Melanie and I were catching up on the phone, she informed me of how she wants to get Netflix. But there was a slight problem: her husband Paul didn’t have the same desire.

I both adore and respect Paul greatly. He’s an amazing friend with a good head on his shoulders. I also understand I’m not the one married to them (despite me inviting them into a committed triad). But sometimes, your friends need to understand that there IS NO LIFE WITHOUT NETFLIX. Dramatic? Hardly.

“Ovaries before brovaries.” “Uteruses before duderuses.” Powerful words from Leslie Knope.

So I decided to send Paul an official letter advising him otherwise. I would not stand by silently. I vowed to advocate for the girl that cleaned up my bloody sheets after my stitches got infected (from an appendectomy) and opened up.

2007: The Year of the Post-Appendectomy Explosion. Just innocent sophomores in our college dorm rooms.

I think I made a valid argument. Read the letter here.
