Dear Mindy: Seeking BFF

Dear Mindy,

You have come into my life so quickly and completely absorbed me in every way possible. Just last week I was going along my daily routine when for the first time in months I decided to sit down in front of the television. Rather than put on HGTV and watch another endless marathon of House Hunters I decided to do something a bit different.

Yes, I hit the On Demand button.

Then there were so many choices. TV show? Movie? Made for TV movie? Although we all know the latter is a cop-out and is probably no good if it couldn't get into theaters. I digress.

I remembered someone telling me how much I would love you and then briefly thought back to the short fling we had this past winter. It still brings a smile to my face when I think about reading Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?

With this thought in mind I quickly clicked through the entire TV show listing because I'm sad to say that I had no clue what network you lived on. I settled in with your first episode...and five more later I emerged.

I must say how much I look up to you and wish that I had the balls to pull some of the same stunts. Example one, the first season pilot. You finally think that you have fallen in love for life when it's ripped from your hands and your previous beau gets engaged faster than Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries' divorce. It was completely rational for you to both drink a tad too much at his wedding and give a speech. People that tell you they'll love you forever and turn that quickly deserve to have their weddings ruined. Preach girl!

When I realized that your new season will be coming to me so quickly I put it in gear and have quickly worked my way through season one. I have become enchanted with you and need to ask you something rather important, will you be my best friend?

I would be honored to borrow clothes from your beautiful closet room, grab dim sum with you at all hours of the night, and take tequila shots with you even though I have personal commitment to no longer drink straight liquor (my poor stomach never recovered from college). I would laugh at your segment with Erica on the local news and I would have never lured you to a surprise birthday party with the bait of a blind date. I still can't believe that happened. You call them your real friends?

While I know that you already have Gwen, Alex, and Maggie, and even Shauna and Betsy, you said it best yourself when you taught Danny how "best friend isn't a person...it's a tier." So if you'll have me feel free to comment and we can find some time to meet up. Trust me, this will be the start of a beautiful friendship.

Sincerely yours,
