In March of 2014, I was able to become a true friend of Shane Trylko’s. Before that, we may have been cousins or something like that, but for nearly six years now, we have been both cousins and friends. I was able to bump into him in person in 2014 at least twice. I bumped into him here at my house in March of 2014 … and then, five months later, I bumped into him again at my uncle’s 50th birthday party. That would be Nicholas Papakie, Jr., of course.
Now, whenever I first became Shane’s friend in March of 2014, I was able to give him a rather classy jacket. I had purchased this jacket at Bridgeville T.J. Maxx a few days earlier … and it was the subject of one of my first blog posts ever. I wrote it back in September of 2014. Now, that jacket would be the green and yellow Brasil jacket. I also bought that jacket for myself … and, whenever Shane visited us at my home, I gave him his jacket … and he liked it as much as I do. The green and yellow Brasil jackets became our “friendship jackets” since we were both terrific friends.
After I left Fella’s Barber Shop in McDonald on Thursday morning, I was able to bump into Shane there. I had just finished getting my haircut whenever I bumped into Shane. It was the first time that I had seen Shane in person since August of 2014. He is a very classy friend indeed.
