This is Matias Meneses and his friend, Pete Podrid. The two have been best bros since they met on their freshman football team in high school – 15 years ago.
Matias, right, and Peter.
In fact, the friends were even voted “best friends” in high school, along with their third BFF.
“We are a tripod,” Meneses told BuzzFeed News.
But recently, the “tripod” faced a change in their squad. Their friend recently got engaged, while the other two are single (well, Meneses actually said, “its complicated”).
So when Meneses decided to take a trip to Thailand, he decided to ask his fellow single bro Podrid to accompany him. Their third BFF couldn’t attend because of that whole “engagement” thing.
“My friend/coworker lived in Thailand for several years and raved about how amazing everything were there,” Meneses said. “He recently moved back and I had to go visit him and see for myself.”
When discussing the trip, Podrid kept joking that it was their “straight life partner honeymoon.” Meneses said he decided to come up with an official name for their trip.
“I was just trying to find a play on words with honeymoon,” he said. “Homiemoon was the one that sounded the best. I’m sure I am not the first person to think of it, but I did arrive at it independently.”
