Another friend of mine (who has never met any of the invited gang) will be in the same town for work, so will probably come meet everyone, and my (also-invited) friend Chris and I were talking about it:
me: He’s nervous
me: I told him we’re all very loud and love each other very much
Chris: that is literally a perfect description of us
Chris: couldn’t have said it better
Chris: we will get drunk, we will give lots of hugs, there will be tears of joy, and singing. and you will probably find us very strange.
