at your cervix

My best friend Jen was told by her gynecologist last week that her cervix is 'unusually firm' for someone her age [which is a number of years younger than me; must remember to ask my gyno to evaluate my cervix next month...]. We called that reason to drink lots of wine celebrate, and I announced that she qualifies as one of my heroes this month.

Jen is a hero not only because of her extraordinary lady parts - she is a mom of 3 boys (that exhausts me just typing it), works in the special ed classroom at our kids' school (doubly exhausted now), and is a genius wingwoman. I am eternally blessed that she moved in across the street nearly six years ago; we immediately connected and were offering each other deep conversation & afternoon cocktails tea within a week. Despite her shocking Republican status, our friendship has grown & thrived as each of us has individually.
We occasionally compete for cutest hair or best boob display [I usually win for sheer volume but her cleavage is always better; she's braver than I] or for the attentions of Certain Bartenders, but in the end we prefer to cheer each other's efforts & successes and be content with our simple, soul-boosting camaraderie.

Thank you for being a firm friend, Jen.

Cheers to good-looking cervices

You posted a picture of a Republican? What is next?

Just kidding. Some of my best friends are Republicans . . .

What a nice friend you have there.

Jen naturally was a given for hero status.

She is lovely in every way you mentioned...

such amazing word play :-)

Hilarious post, Stephanie! You are my blogwriting hero.

Jen is definitely the Republican I'd choose to take if I was about to be stranded on a desert island. But I think I'd ask for special dispensation to pick two. Because she'd be very sad without her Dave.

And of course, you and Lisa would have to come as well, because she'd miss her best friends. And she'd want you both to have your fellas...

Pretty soon this would be one rockin' island, because Jen is a firm believer in making life fun.

Everyone should be so lucky to have such good friends!

Good friends rock. Plain and simple.

...especially ones with a good rack. They help a lot with the free drinks. :)

Firmness? I never even knew that this was one of the things we got graded on, cervix-wise. Glad you've got a friend and neighbor who understands your blog habits.

You are so blessed!

And, did you just know the plural of cervix or did you have to look it up?
