The wisdom of Elhaj: Part Two – Every Tsunami Has A Fluorescent Lining
An unexpected part of learning to surf is letting yourself being amazed by all the weird ways the water will go. And I defy anyone to top Emily Elhaj.
Anywho, Emily’s friend stops her to check in and once again tell her how sorry he is and to remind Emily that she will in fact be ok. Upon hearing this exchange Stephanie asks what happened. And Emily says something vague and assumes that Stephanie is only intending to be polite. But Stephanie says “Listen. People kiss my ass all day. Now sit down and tell me just what happened.” And so Emily does. And Stephanie listens offering kindness and saying things like “What a bitch!” in all the right places. Like good friends do.
So the moral of the story is that by simply being a Ladydude Stephanie forever changed what could have effectively been one of the worst days of Emily’s life into what no doubt, will instead be one of the weirdest waves ever. And when I say weird, I mean that in the best possible way.
Damn, I was downright determined not to like your ass. Song 67b.
EMILY’S P.S. – It went down at a bar on the Lower Easy Side called Welcome to the Johnson’s on the same day she flipped people off at the Mets game and was promptly whisked away to Seinfeld’s private box. What a dame.
SARAH’S P.S. – Man I hope you meant to type the Lower “Easy” Side.
