I got totally called out!

So after my post about my rave reviews on Grill-A-Burger I got called out by my BFF Tommyma. See my BFF Tom has a food establishment. He owns The Central Coast Steak & Hoagie in Simi Valley. He feeds us all the time his yummy cheese steaks and delicious french fries and what is fast becoming my favorite, the home-made potato chips. Tommy worked so hard and went through a lot of crap in getting this place open. But I had no doubt that he would do it and be successful.

See I meet a Tom about 8 years ago. He was my ex-husband's (husband at the time) boss. He also lived in the same apartment complex we did. Right across the parking lot from us. As my husband and Tom became friends, Tom and I become friends too. Soon we were going to the gym together, having dinner together, taking care of each other when we got sick. (Tom makes the bomb hot and sour soup!) We had cooking contests where we would pick a dish from a cook book, go shopping for all the ingredients and then make dinner for everyone. We would not tell them who made what and then they decided who made the best dish. (I totally won that one!) We made crazy Simpsons puzzles and went to family functions together.
And when my husband and I spilt up, Tom is so cool that he has remained close to us both without any conflict. In fact he lives with my ex-husband now. He has always been there for me and has been there to help celebrate all the big events. Even in a Dough boy costume.

He has truly become one of the family. He is our Asian brother. My parents adopted son. And we are proud of his success. He comes on vacation with us an is considered one of us "kids".
He is a great Uncle to all the kids (even though he complains that he has too many nieces and nephews). I cannot even being to express how much I miss the days where Tom and I were inseparable. When he would take me for ice cream after I got a tattoo. Or when we would just go to the beach and hang out. And when Tom is around we are a complete and happy family.

So Tom, are we still BFF's??????
