Webster’s Dictionary defines a Friend as a person who you like and enjoy being with. To me a friend is much more than that, I think a friend is someone who will, despite having an incredibly busy schedule, drop everything to sit down and write a blog congratulating someone for not using drugs or alcohol for four years. Which is probably why I’m writing this, again, and Kevin isn’t.
All the blogs in the world couldn’t capture the awesomeness that is Alex Colins. When he’s not busy running things at Jaywalker and jamming out to today’s top 10 pop songs, you can find him coaching middle school football, or lifting irresponsible amounts of weight. And despite all that, he still finds time to help out all his friends. Alex, do you remember the time Kevin ate all that chili before his hot yoga class and he had an “accident” and you had to bring him a clean pair of underwear and take him out for ice cream to cheer him up? What a guy! This is just one of the times Alex has had to rescue Kevin from an embarrassing situation with clean underwear and ice cream, but trust me there are many more.
I guess the point I’m trying to make is that Alex is a true friend. Not only to the small and weak, but to anyone who has the pleasure of knowing him. He works hard every day to make sure everyone’s needs are met. He’s incredibly smart, has a great sense of humor, and is one of the kindest creatures I’ve ever known. Congratulations on four years Alex! You’re the best, and I can’t wait for you to be my daughter’s live-in nanny.
