Yet sometimes, sometimes you find a friend that will survive that 7-year-itch. Someone who knows you so well that you can't keep any secrets. Someone who makes you laugh and smile even if you haven't seen each other in months. A true friend who accepts both the good and the bad in you.
I'm fortunate enough to have such a friend. We met 10 years ago when we just went to middle school. It was a scary time for everyone, especially when you're an awkward teenager. I can't think of anyone who enjoyed their teenage years...
Anyway, over the years, we got to know each other better and a friendship was born just because we were both weird and crazy. We only ever had one fight and I can't even remember what it was about, but as it was probably petty teenage drama, it was sorted within a few days.
We were each other's prom date because boys sucked at that time and even our graduation did not stop us from meeting up and having fun.
We don't live as close now anymore but that doesn't matter. You don't have to see each other every week to be true friends. On the contrary, if a friendship survives even when you don't see each other that often, you know it's a good one.
So to my partner in crime, my crazy bitch and the awesomest chick in the world, thank you for the past 10 years. I hope that when we're old and grey we'll still be having fun together. And as my girl Katy sang, I will love you unconditionally!
