We used to write eachother notes in 7th grade and call eachother "Bob". We had favorite movie quotes that were such "inside jokes" that I now feel very outside those 14 year old girls' world. But I still know why we loved "Deep Thoughts" and David Letterman. In college I took top bunk, she had bottom. We logged countless hours of late night conversations, and early mornings, and mid-afternoons.
And now, to add to the history books: we crossed the threshhold of our "Thirties" together. Last night she took the leap... soon I'll follow.
Everyone should have a friend like this. The kind that knew your smile in braces, stood with you on your wedding day, and held your newborn baby. Good friends are very good indeed.
