I've been friends with Eric for about 7 years now (he's the blurry guy in this drunken photo taken 2 years ago), and over the years he and I have been each other's date for weddings, work parties and other shindigs, being that we've often been single during those times and need a +1. We do not connect in between these rare occasions; it's just a given that we will help each other out when the time comes. So when I got a text from Eric tonight asking if I was free Saturday night, I figured he needed me for an event.
Me: What's happening Saturday night?
Eric: My wedding.
Me: I can't tell if you're joking or not.
Eric. Not joking!!! I want you to crash my wedding.
This made me laugh! And also made me a bit teary. Although Eric and I are not even that close (clearly, since I had no idea he was even engaged), it genuinely moved me to know he has finally found his +1.
I can't wait to meet his soon-to-be bride, and I should probably ask what her name is in my next text.
Also, it seems I'm gonna need a new Eric to help me crash this party.
