The Bromance

Bromance~ a relationship between two male friends that are close like brothers. They like to talk; go eat; watch sports; go eat again; have a beer, or two or three; get together without the wives and kids. Have He-man time.

This will not be found in Webster's dictionary. This is one of those words that the younger generation came up with.

Today while out with my girls, I mentioned Dad was running some errands with Paul. One of the girls mumbled something about "Bromance" and the other giggled. I said, "what are you talking about?" They said, Dad has a Bromance, and explained it to me.

Now, don't get the wrong idea. I love this friend! I love that he can sit for hours talking politics, Union talk, sports, and the many other topics they have. He is a wonderful friend of Sergio's and I welcome him! It relieves me of alot of talk! Especially about things that I am not as passionate as Sergio is. I think everyone should have this kind of a friend.

Since we moved we now live just a few blocks from Paul. Therefore, the guys see each other more often. Yea! You go guys!

Besides, it helps Sergio understand my girlfriend time. I guess I have a few Sis-mances as well!

This is funny! :-) I always enjoy your stories.

Neither my husband nor I have friends like that - we just hang around with each other and that's what we like.

I do have one girlfriend that I have a very occasional lunch with, but that's basically it. He has no male friends that he hangs around with.

We live in a very small town and everyone is basically just involved with their families. My husband works from home all days except one, and his main office is located 160 miles away, so I don't know - friendships just don't occur.

Hope you're having a blessed week after Christmas and that you have a Happy New Year!
