Life Doesn't Suck This Thursday

So my dear blogger friend Mrs. Fussypants has started a new Thursday Theme, that I haven't participated in since I have my own (see previous post). But I decided that after the evening I had last night, I would write a "Life Doesn't Suck" post and link to her site.
Life doesn't suck when you have great friends. Life doesn't suck when you have friends that you can call at any given moment through the day and talk for an hour, hang up, and when you talk later that day (as inevitably happens) still have stuff to say for another hour or so.
Life doesn't suck when you go to a gathering, and know almost everyone there, and realize that you can carry on an intelligent conversation with all of the attendees, including the person you have met for the first time that night.
Life doesn't suck when you are on your way home, and instead of waiting for you to call the person you just dropped of she calls you to keep you company at 2:30 AM AND to make sure you make it home OK after having a few extra drinks throughout the night.
Life doesn't suck when your husband of 10 years, doesn't care that you crawl into bed at 3:30ish AM (on a "school night") after spending the whole evening with the friends mentioned above.
And I know that this is a "Life Doesn't Suck" post, but I do have to tell you that "Life Does Suck" when people you love keep moving away and you have to say "goodbye", or I guess not "goodbye" but "see you later".
See you later CB!

You define the term "True Friend".
