You know what you need?
You need friends like our friends, Katherine and Ashley. But don’t even try to steal them. They are ours and they love us the best and we won’t share them.
How do I know they love us the best?
Because they have us over to their house for supper, let us drink all of their wine, allow us a dip in their pool, and don’t ask us to leave when Frat Boy The Younger chugs all of their pool water and then pukes it up all over their new abode.
They also give us super sneaky surprises. They do things like invite Katherine’s cousin, who happens to be one Joe Kwon, over for supper on the same night and don’t tell us they did. This is likely a good thing, because the fangirl anticipation would have been scary. And let me tell you, John and I were both trying to be cool the whole time and act like we weren’t having groupie “It’s all happening” moments, but inside we were. Lots of them. On the outside I was my normal charming self the whole time. I didn’t start hyperventilating or ask him to sign my boob or anything. I only requested that he make sure the next album is dedicated to us and for a party on the tour bus. I think he said it would happen, but as I was looking for a pen so I could get it in writing, John asked if Joe would be his facebook friend and then demanded he play “Freebird.” Embarrassing.
But the fame has not gone to our favorite member of The Avett Brothers band’s head. Joe Kwon helped clean up Frat Boy The Younger’s puke, y’all. He’s a keeper.
Now go buy their new CD. It’s excellent.
