Joelle’s tales: First Thursday of the month #TMAT120 #writing #prompt for June

The start of a new month and a new challenge:
Today’s prompt is:  How you met your best friend

True friends are already hard to come by, but one’s best friend? That’s a different ball game.
I have known my best friend for 28 years. Our backgrounds are totally different, yet we hit it off straightaway and have never looked back.
My first words were actually an insult about his car, but he grinned, took it in his stride and has never held it against me (well, not much).
How did we meet?
Through the local paper. One of those Ad thingies, though he was asking for companionship not a relationship. Oh boy. He got me!
We supported each other through financial problems, though not lending each other money, disastrous relationship issues, and job loss.
Who is he?
My husband.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
