Foodie Friendship [YouTube demo, fan request]

by Stephan Nance



Austin wrote to me asking if I'd write a song as his gift to Anna, his best friend forever of ten years as of February 2nd, 2012! Of course I couldn't say no to such an adorable request. Here's to many more decades of friendship!! *hugs*


Anna and Austin's
muffled laughter ensues
when their teacher offers nasty cookies
they cannot refuse
because their friendship's largely based on food,
so the taste is less important than
the bond that is renewed.

If it's true that you are what you consume,
When you split a cherry popsicle
You share a kind of womb;
Your affinity and unity are
Bolstered by gastronomy;
Your camaraderie's eternal
(Though your arteries are doomed).
Measure life
Not by the breaths you take,
But by the moments when you cannot take a breath because
Your mouth is full of cake.
Follow your spaztastic hearts wherever they go,
and in 50 years or so
you'll be living on a vast cookie island
in the middle of Lake Winnebago.


released February 2, 2012
