Okay, you are not very old, but you are one of my oldest, and dearest friends! You drive me absolutely insane sometimes, and you know it, but I love you none-the-less! I still remember when we met, back in middle school. We were pretty different people back then and back then it was always a game of poking you with our viola bows. Now, the game is to get you to respond to your text messages. 😉 We’ve had some great times and I think we’ll have some more. I can honestly say, after 13 (moving on 14) years, I’m glad I can call you my friend!
You have been a big impact on my life. You’ve reminded me, always, of my love of baseball. You’ve encouraged and helped develop my love of hockey, even if I do support an entirely different team than you do. You’ve introduced me to a pretty awesome band, for free! For all our goofy adventures, my favorite memory is a tie. I love when we got lost on the way home from prom in high school and I also love the night we went to see the Gin Blossoms. Those were both pretty funny experiences and two events I see as highlights and important points in our friendship.
It’s been a long time since we’ve talked, beyond the short, brief texts. That doesn’t mean I don’t wonder how you’re doing, how life is going, and all that jazz! I know you’re doing well and, despite the fact that it’s been a while since we’ve chatted, I know when we do get to talk again, it’ll be like we never stopped. I’m so thankful that I’ve gotten to know you over these last 13 years. You’ve been a huge influence in my life and a wonderful friend! I look forward to many more years of friendship and of course, most important of all: happy birthday!
