Covering: something laid over or wrapped around a thing, especially for concealment, protection, or warmth.
Go with me on this. I think of my friends from college as a covering. All 13 of us (yes, 13) are gathering at the Outlaw Bay House in Mobile, Alabama this weekend. Everyone's there as we speak, I'm bringing up the rear and fly in tonight. Just in time for an 11:30pm (IMAX/3D) showing of Harry Potter, I'll have you know.
These friends are a gift. And they cover me.
Pair this reflective thinking about my friends with my other current trail of thought - "What rug should I get for our living room???." Leads one to wonder - "If my friends were rugs, what would they be?!"
Well, I'll tell ya.
