friend of the opposite sex? The one where, if you’re both still single, lonely
and hopeless at thirty, you’ll marry each other?This is the story about what happens when you hit the big three-oh and have to
make good on that pinky promise.
Personally, I think love, romance and all of that nonsense is a crock of, well,

backyard barbecues, knows that better than anyone.
But when he moves to the same city I’ve happily, and singly, inhabited for

really hot dog and that bone just happens to be me.
He won’t stop hounding me, and the crazy thing is, my frigid, traitorous heart
is starting to cave. For my best friend.
It seems so far off, when you’re a kid playing Monopoly in your treehouse. But
