Meet Joey, Sam, Brendan and Brandon
This gang of four originally met freshmen year of college, and became so close that they shared everything. Fast forward ten years, and Joey, Sam, Brandon and Brendan still share everything: an apartment, a beer fridge, and a single terry cloth towel. The towel, which has collected quite a lot of mildew, was borrowed by one of the men, then another, and eventually passed between the boys so many times that no one could remember who the towel belonged to.
"That thing has been with us forever, its basically the fifth member of our squad," said Brandon.
Last Halloween, when the boys dressed up as the cast of Aladdin, Sam wore the towel as part of his inaccurate genie costume. Recent visitor and party guest Catie Darrow reported that early in the night, she spotted the towel being used to clean up an ambiguous spill, only to find herself drying her hands with it later in the bathroom. When Catie was sneaking out the next morning, she allegedly saw Brandon exiting the bathroom using the towel to dry his hair. Another friend, who chose to remain anonymous, reported seeing the towel being used to dry off dishes a few days later.
As the guys approach thirty, they are getting serious about their careers, and are even thinking about getting a dog together. When asked if the friends' future plans included purchasing a new towel, perhaps even multiple towels, one of the guys coughed "gay" and they all laughed.
Boys will be boys!
