The BFF and I have known each other since SECOND GRADE!!! We were in the same class, but we sealed our friendship when we performed ‘Lollipop’ together in the talent show. And yes, we were fabulous!
From second grade through senior year, we called each other almost every day after school. The BFF moved away for university, but our friendship didn’t end with that. Thank goodness for the modern age of technology! Between calling, texting, and social media, we were able to keep up with each other’s doings. We made a tradition of me going to visit her every Halloween (some of my favorite memories from college).
By societal standards we are both adults now, and doing a pretty decent job of it I’d say. We both have big-girl jobs, aren’t living with our parents, and are in steady, committed relationships. The BFF was my Maid of Honor in my wedding this past summer (duh) and she did my makeup as well (stunning!). And of course she threw me a perfect bachelorette party!
We don’t talk every day now, but that’s not really an issue. The BFF and I know that silence doesn’t mean anger. We’ll text each other randomly, and often – at LEAST once a week. We talk on the phone, and meet up when we can. It’s all good. We’re best friends, and nothing will change that.
This doesn’t even begin to scratch the amazingness that is the BFF and our friendship! More will be revealed with time.
Until then, I leave you with a lyric from Weezer’s My Best Friend (artistic emphasis added by me):
You’re my BEST FRIEND,
and I LOVE YOU, and I LOOOOOVE you,
YES I DOOOOOOOOO!!!!!
