Remember those years when having a "best friend" was vital to your well being -
to say nothing of your emotional survival at school?
When we endlessly agonising together over "the bad hair" days; the "does he like me, really?" days; the "my mom is a cow" days; the "will my skin EVER stop breaking out!" days?
And when we got swept up together in the massive highs?
When it was: YES, he does like me; when magically, the hair falls how it should; the days when moms seemed almost human or when skin suddenly, unexpectedly bloomed with health. When you just HAD to keep checking mirrors tomake sure it was real.
Remember those too?
Then, there were the times when she just got on your nerves.
The need to put some space between you and her?
Until you realised that nothing was as much fun without your buddy to share it with
That somehow life felt 'real-er' when it was shared with her after all.
Well, I see that best friend relationship is a bit like what I have with Alliechilling.
And at the moment, it's not a cat fight scene - its just as though we have been on not-speaking terms, I've been needing my space.
Now I am starting to miss her . . .
So here's hoping we will soon be arm-in-arm friends again
Cosily sharing all the bits and pieces of "our" life again.
In the meantime, enjoy your own best friendblog, kay?
