Friends Through Thick or Thin.
Bill walked into his favorite bar and immediately saw his best friend, John, sitting at the bar.
“Hey, John. Sup?”
John smiled. “I’m celebrating. I just won the lottery.”
Bill was shocked. “Congratulations. Let me buy you a beer.” He bought John a beer and ordered one for himself.
After a few sips of beer, John said, “Bill, you’re my best friend. I want to share my winnings with you. I’m going to give you half.”
“Aw, you don’t have to do that. I’m just happy for you.”
“No, no. I want to. We’ve been friends since we were in school. You’ve stood by me through thick and thin. I want you to have half.”
Bill smiled. “Okay. Let me buy another round to celebrate.” Bill lifted his glass in a toast. “Here’s to us—best friends forever through thick or thin.”
John clicked glasses and drank a big gulp. He took out his wallet and handed Bill a dollar bill.
“Here you go.”
Bill stared at the dollar bill. “John, this is only one dollar.”
“Yeah, I know. I only won two.”
