Dear Tiffany Haddish
I’m going to see you at the casino tonight
and I know you will make me laugh.
So I would like to lay out
the reasons why
we can be friends
-best friends, if you want-
and I can make you laugh too.
(That’s reason #1).
We can drink together
because I like to drink and
do wild things and meet random folks
and tell stories the next day.
We can walk city streets together
and talk loudly
and stare at people
and curse and laugh some more.
Sometimes I’ll be your quiet friend
who listens more than she speaks
because I’m really good at listening
and who doesn’t want a friend like that?
I’m warm and understanding
and I’ll never judge you harshly
(but we can still judge others.)
I like movies and TV
and you’re on movies and TV.
I can bring you coffee and sandwiches
and I give good gifts at Christmas.
I also like to curse (did I say that already)
and to stay out late.
I’m assuming you like these things
but I guess I’ll find out more about you tonight
when you make me laugh.
