It’s time to name the BFF (Best Friend Forever) of the Month for July.
But before I do, let me give a shout-out to June BFF of the Month Suzy, who went way above and beyond the call of duty, helping me plan one of the best parties ever. She was a fantastic BFF throughout the month and I can’t say enough good things about her.
Even though Suzy set an incredibly high standard for BFF of the Month, I have every reason to believe that my choice for July BFF will live up to it.
This month’s pick is a case where I never specifically asked for input from my readers, but nevertheless got plenty. And after weighing it all, I have decided that my readers are absolutely spot-on with their advice.
There were several good contenders…
First we have Melissa, who bartends at one of my favorite restaurants, Itta Bena. She’s smart, fun to be around, looks great in a tube top. Plenty of reasons to vote for her as my BFF.
Then there’s Stephanie, who coordinates the excellent Downtown Alive program for the Center City Commission. She hangs out at the same places I do when she’s off work, and owns more tube tops than anyone I’ve ever seen. Plenty of reasons to vote for her as my BFF.
Then there’s Meghan, trying to regain her BFF status. Reasons to select her include… um……. well, let’s see… uh… er… um… geez, there’s gotta be something…… um…… man this is a tough one. Well, she does bartend at Big Foot, a place where I really enjoy hanging out and drinking.
So those were the main people I posted as candidates for the July BFF of the Month title. June BFF Suzy said I need to make a crown, because it’s only appropriate for her, as the outgoing BFF, to crown the new BFF. I’m workin’ on that. Been busy throwing tube top parties lately, you know.
So anyway… I laid out the choices… and my readers spoke.
And most of them said the same thing. And I agree.
They made the right call.
So… the July BFF of the Month is… NONE OF THE ABOVE.
Not that they didn’t deserve it. Well, Melissa certainly deserves to be BFF of the Month.
So does Stephanie.
But not this month.
Because most all of my readers told me the same thing…
“GIVE SUZY ANOTHER MONTH!”
So it won’t be necessary to make that crown until the first of August. Meet the BFF of the Month for July, Suzy.
