Spice Force Five

Sometimes, I don’t only hang out with boys. I have a few girls that I keep in my pocket who are just as near and dear to me. And I’d like to let the world know that it’s true, I do love Kelly Dooley. Here’s why:

She always listens to me. No matter how ludicrous I am, or if my story is stupid or I sound young and naive – Kelly will look me straight in the eye and just listen. She never judges me and constantly offers her full support. Even at 5 or 6am, when I’m drunk and miserable… I know she’s wide-awake, munching on Doritos, watching something weird on TV or re-reading Twilight for the 18th time and she’ll BBM me the nicest things in the world to make me feel better.

When we played Spin the Bottle/7 Minutes in Heaven and we got each other, I said, "Kelly, should we just talk?" and before I could finish the sentence, she pinned me down.

She’s one of the guys just like me. But when we’re alone, we treat each other like the girls that we are! Nails! Hair! Secret crushes!

We’ve shared men and talk about it like it’s the most natural, normal thing in the world.

She’s a North Shore girl and grew up hanging out in Everett because her family is from there – and I actually went to high school with her cousin and had her family as my teachers. And, one of my Everett best friends hung out with her when they were kids. We also went to dancing school together. So, we share a secret North Shore bond.

She got me high for the first time on the very first day I officially met her. In a tent. And she was wearing white and had a White Chocolate phone and I had a Mint Chocolate phone. Both of those phones went M.I.A and we were both very sad about them. (Kel left hers in a cab and mine… well, mine fell off a rollercoaster.)

She pocket calls me at least once a week.

Finally, she’s the strongest person I know! She has dealt with almost every possible situation every human being faces, and somehow she’s still standing. I know it’d be very hard for me, because I don’t deal with change, personal turmoil and loss very well. But she… man, I can’t even explain. A lot of you know Kelly today, and while I wouldn’t say she’s a DIFFERENT person, I’d say she’s a more mature person than the first day I met her. She makes the right choices for herself, she takes care of herself and her sister and her whole family. She carries the weight of the world on her shoulders and yet still manages to work, go to school and do improv with two separate teams.

And oh yeah, she’s turning into Lady GaGa.


Old school!
