My dad's name was Bill. My son's name is Will. My nephew's name is Liam. I am surrounded by versions of William.
When Maggie was dating in high school, her boyfriend's best friend was named Will. Since that breakup and over the years, Best Friend Will has remained a constant in her life. He has been to our house many times and was an usher when she and Nate got hitched.
We heart the Will.
Maggie and Nate stood up in a wedding this weekend that we were invited to. Maggie's best friend and Will sat with Mark and I. I chatted with them for awhile and after dinner the bridesmaid and groomsman joined our table. I said something to Will which caused Maggie to announce, "I'm sorry. I have to apologize for my mom, Will. She's got a crush on you."
"When the pictures from the wedding came in every time she saw you she said........oh there's Will. I love Will."
Oh, geez, Maggie. Really???
Will gives Maggie shit when she deserves it. He's smart, funny, a good friend and a ten on the cute meter. What's not to like about him?
Before dinner when we were catching up on his last year of med school, he told me he reads my blog every day. It's in his favorites. Your favorites? Oh my.
I have a crush on every one of my daily readers. As for Will the Friend, I hope one day that he meets a girl who falls crazy in love with him and thinks he hung the moon...........and that I'm there to celebrate.
