We all know that great Sex and the City quote, “Maybe our girlfriends are our soulmates and guys are just people to have fun with.”
Well I certainly found my soulmate in a classmate at eight years old.
This girl has been my rock and my hard place. She has been through absolutely everything with me, and I couldn’t be more grateful for such a wonderful friendship. She also sometimes smells really funny and says really weird things, but I forgive her for that.
Our story started around third grade. I don’t remember a lot of the details, mostly because I don’t remember life before I was blessed with the most wonderful friend in the world. I can tell you that from the beginning we were pretty inseparable. Our friendship hasn’t changed much since those elementary school days. We still stay up way too late, come up with bizarre ideas (that we usually follow through with), and laugh until our stomachs hurt and we are crying or peeing our pants.
I can’t explain our friendship. I couldn’t tell you what we laugh about every second that we’re together. I can’t tell you why I know when something is wrong with her no matter how far away we are. We get weird looks and accused of being drunk pretty often, but really we’re just enjoying every second we get to spend together.
Life has taken us through so many different things, from crazy adventures in high school, to me moving to California, and there have certainly been a few bumps in our road. Somehow, we always come right back to each other no matter what happens.
There is no other person that I think of when I see something hilarious on the Internet, and you best believe if you’ve posted something weird on Facebook we have screenshot it, sent it, and made fun of you.
She’s my best friend. She’s my person. She gets me on a level that I didn’t know existed. We’re weird and fun and crazy.
Happiest of birthdays to my lifelong friend. My life wouldn’t be the same without you.
Don’t expect me to say anything nice about you for at least another year.
Until next time,
Life is my comedy show
