Nights out with the girls are no longer only about the alcohol, the dancing, the music and the men. Often, they’re just about feeling free; and about three-orders of poutine. Going out with my girlfriends is about judgement-free carbs.
Someone recently told to me that female friendships are only supportive when one person doesn’t care enough to discourage the imminent mistakes of the other. I don’t think that’s true at all. My girlfriends and I call each other out all the time. But we’re also close enough to know exactly why its important for the other person to gorge on carbs on that one night out. And so, we encourage the starch intake, inspite of everything bad that can come out of it.
