Internetz, I have this truly awesome friend who, for the sake of anonymity, let's call her Bean (as in coffee bean - since she loves a latte as much as I do!)

Bean and I get together for lunch (and lattes) often. She is one of few "real life" friends that knows my whole IF drama and was even one of my references for this whole adoption process. Bean has three kids of her own - one away at university, one in Grade 8, and one in Grade 6. They're great kids - Irish Boy and I are especially close to her two youngest.

Well Bean has a bit of a crush on a lovely man she met recently - and they have an impending coffee date.

She joked with her daughter in Grade 8 (let's call her Mini Bean because she's got her mom's quick wit and sassy personality) that if he happened to call to go for coffee, she'd have to cancel her lunch date with me to see him.

Here's how it went:

Bean: I'm having lunch with Fertility Chick tomorrow, but I guess if Mr. X calls about coffee, I'll have to blow her off!

Mini-Bean: Mom! You can't do that!

Bean: (laughing) Why not?!

Mini-Bean: Bros before ho's, Mom, bros before ho's! FC is your "bro" - you can't blow her off. It's against the friendship code.

Bean: (in hysterics)

I love me that Mini-Bean.

Also? Bean did meet me for lunch.

Because you know, bros before ho's.

She is an amazing mother because that is truly a rule to live by. Guys will come and go but a true "bro" will always be there for you and you shouldn't cancel on her...especially for a "ho".

That's awesome. My friends and I (in High School) always said 'chicks before dicks,' though.
