Hahaha. That comic was a classic. Once I had to have my friend pull out my tampon(S) because somehow I gotten two in there over the course of three days while we were vacationing in Boston… But I couldn’t get either out. And I can also relate to Sara on this one. I popped a boil on my friend’s back and the pus hit me in the face… Disgusting at the time, but hilarous now. Funny how everything gets better with time.
Once again- Thanks for keeping it real, Tracy!
I called 911 for a friend of mine who’d attempted suicide….the only thing was it was 3 in the morning, she was across town, and she INSTANT MESSAGED ME to tell me that she’d taken a bottle of her mum’s Prozac. She was alright though…
id go far enough to risk our freindship. my best friend was doing LOTS of drugs and one night after watching her puke again and again while doing drugs i decided to tell her mom. long story short there was an intervention and i was there. she told me, and everyone else to f#$* off. we didn’t talk for a long time. we are finally friends again (she wen tto rehab) and she told me how much it meant to her that i said something even though at the time she hated me for it.
i would go as far as they wanted me 2 go cause if i loved my friend as much as i love my family i would do anything for them no matter what it takes
Pen, so was it hairy?
when i was 16? 17? my indonesian friend once asked me if he had any hair on his punk ass.. and then he mooned me. and i was all ‘Aww! Aww man! come on!’ and he was all ‘tell me!’ and i was all ‘no. its not hairy.’
i agree. i’d do almost anything for my friends.
I’ve never really had to go for really ANYBODY. But this is a very true comment: I will go as far as I need to if it means saving/helping my closest friends. Even just friends, I’ll go as far as I need to.
Man oh man oh man. Good stuff…
SO, How far would I go for my friends : never been physically intimate with any of my girl friends, as I can remember. When I was 20, did a lot for a friend, Pierre, who was 22 and a virgin, and not sure about his sexual preferences. Not a very memorable night, or may be very memorable, and not a
very useful one he was still confused 10 years later, though certainly not a virgin anymore. Did much more for him in 98 when he came to new york and had a manic episode for 2 full weeks right there in our house : it was a very very bizarre time : I took him to the psychiatric emergency room thrice : once in a very bad, very scary public hospital in Brooklyn a satruday night, another time to the freaky veteran hospital where I knew someone, and another night he called me in the middle of the night : I met him in the street - he had a pushcart like a bum, full of stuff - paid for the restaurant because he had no money, rode with him in a NYPD car - I don’t remember who had called them - to Presbyterian up town were he was saying
I was crazy not him. He was very manipulative : he had a theory about shiny people and dark people and had put my husband in the dark people bunch, that was the worst moment in 7 years for us as a couple…He finally was flown back to France by his insurance company after 2 weeks in the Psychiatry Ward. He was very angry at me for ‘betraying him’. We started our friendship again, but I stopped talking to him the day of our wedding when he said that I was not paying enough attention to him…
i don’t think i could EVER do that for a friend. even my best friend.
Another classic comic!! I’ve never had to do that… but if I had to it would ONLY be for my best friend… after a couple of shots.
yikes!!! it’s amazing what you’ll do for a friend. i can’t believe i’m writing this, but once, for my boyfriend, i popped zits on his back!!! just like monkeys
i popped a giant zit on my friends back. it was big and red and we used warm towels to make it easier to squeeze and when i squeezed it this white stuff shot out and hit the mirror behind me.
A friend of mine once kicked her leg up on the bathroom counter and showed me how to use a tampon. I thought I was going to pass out. I thought that was intimate. Now I will equate that with shaking hands. I love this comic! Tracy does it again!! Thanks!

Thank you so much for sharing that story - - it SOOOO sounds like something my friends and I would do…
Once my best friend decided to wax my bikini area, because she had just gotten her esthetician license - - so I drank like 3 glasses of wine…and about half way through the ungodly amount of pain - she accidentally leaned on one of the already pulled wax strips and ended up with my pubic hair on the elbow of her white jacket - it was hilarious.
I feel your pain!!!!
that made me laugh out loud. especialy the panel with the garlic. I lied for a friend of mine once. she was going out with a much older man (MUCH OLDER) and told her mom she was spending a few days with me when really she went to st. thomas with him..i kept waiting for her mom to call and check in, but she never did. it turns out my friend called her mom from the hotel. i guess its not a bad memory it was just REALLY stressful. in the end my friend realized she didn’t like the guy and came home early anyway.
