I have this friend who was the funny friend. Always got cast as the “character part” in school plays, usually someone’s mother. Had a marriage to a guy who was a total schmuck, and she knew it going in, but she figured she had to settle for a guy who would take her.

She also ended the marriage on her own, set herself up independently, worked her way up to executive assistant to the president of a major university. And she still makes people laugh. Well, she says things that make ME laugh, even after almost 17 years married. And she gets more beautiful every day.
