now if you watch sex and the city you'll know about the mirrors ("There we were, the three mirrors Samantha couldn't avoid"). i have 3 of the 4 sex and the city girls in my life.
miranda: i've known her for a year. she is the one that keeps me grounded and sane. she may not have the lists but she is the most logical. sadly, she has been having her own adventures in Europe for the past 3 months while she studies abroad. she has her head in the right place and is the one out of the 3 of us that doesn't depend on a guy for happiness. they are just there for convenience mainly and to clean out the cobwebs when it gets a little dusty down there.
samantha: i don't know what i would do without her. with miranda 5000 miles away, samantha is my ground. we have each other to hold on to right now and we keep each other up. if there has ever been a carrie and samantha it would be us. she is a sex queen. one drunken night she texted a guy she liked (while with another):
"there are a lot of guys that like me right now but you're the only one i'm into."
samantha 1, boys 0. or boys 1, samantha 0. either way she got laid that night regardless, on my floor, with her foot uncomfortably close to my face, while i was trying to sleep. oh my mirrors.
but we all need our friends. even if its just for a girls night with no talk of the problems that await us when the night is over or if its for a covert operation to chuck a saint patrick's day sweatshirt at a ex's door while you whisper the entire way because you feel like he's going to pop out of every crevasse (that's so much prettier than "crevice"). your mirrors keep you in check. they help you realize when you look a bit like a mess and need to fix yourself up a bit.
