As you may have noticed, no one on this blog gets to use their real name. Some people approved their nickname (Snarky) and some learned theirs by surprise (Sneezy). The best, though, was ConArti$t, who came fully equipped with her own “rapper name”.
ConArti$t has a way with words and always makes me laugh. Of course she has her own stage name! And of course she is my friend!
ConArti$t is a winner. If she is competing, she is winning. I think this comes from a lifetime of being a killer athlete. Most of our competitions aren’t sports related though (if you know me at all, this should not be shocking). Nope, when we get together we compete at Buzzword, Battle of the Sexes, even Words with Friends. She kills me (and everyone else) every single time… except once, when I saw her not win at bowling. She tells me it isn’t a real sport so it doesn’t count as a loss. I’m not sure where that is in the rule book, but I’ll allow it.
Either way, ConArti$t is awesome…and loyal. She is the friend I wish I would have had on the playground in elementary school. If someone insults one of her friends, they should really take cover. I’ve heard tales of her taking up my cause when someone had something unkind to say about me. For that I am forever grateful.
I may not ever win a game, but I feel like a winner because I have ConArti$t in my corner – in life and on my wedding day 32 days from today!
