Tex, is my husband, raised in the great state of Texas [insert hook ’em horns here]. How do I describe him? In a word, wonderful. But to you he’s probably either very serious or very silly.
Maya is my best girlfriend and former roommate. Like her namesake in Girlfriends, she’s got a LOT of attitude but a lot of heart too. We met freshman year of college, bonded over America’s Next Top Model and the rest is history!
Sunny is my other college BFF. I met her through Maya and liked her instantly–the second time I met her (I don’t like anyone who interrupts my naps). She’s always optimistic and her happy-go-lucky personality balances out my ruthless pragmatism.
Charles Marrero is Tex’s homeboy and former college roommate. Every other word out of his mouth is pure FOOLISHNESS, but he’s a fun guy and has actually become one of my good friends too.
Teddy McBright is another college buddy. He’s got an amazing loft apartment with a killer view, and two professional parents who make bank but you’d never know it to talk to him. Hands down one of the coolest people I know.
Mr. and Mrs. Teenage Dream are a couple I got to know through Tex. They both have the kind of squeaky clean look that 90s pop bands are made of. They’re cute as a button, cotton candy sweet and crazy talented. But rather than be jealous, you can’t help but like them because they’re so gosh darn nice.
Jaleesa is my law school bestie. If I need a workout partner, a concert buddy or just a laugh break, she’s my girl. Coincidentally, she’s the same age as my big sister and also like her, has kept me from more than one meltdown.
Porsche is one of my associates from undergrad. She’s a bit high maintenance, but is always ready to help someone out. Aristocat is her boyfriend, who earned this title because he has an epic name and limitless ambition. (And I like the Disney movie.)
LS is my sorority sister, the deuce to my ace on our line of two. We’re on a happy birthday/Merry Christmas communication basis due to some fundamental difference in life philosophies, although I’m still hoping that will change one day.
