It's been a lot of years since someone has called me their best friend. Until today.

Jeannett has been in my life for 15 years. We have our obligatory 6-week phone call. We talk about everything and anything. She's never called me her best friend.

Karen has been in my life for 11 years. We were two peas in a pod. We were soul-sistas, but not best friends.

Christina has been in my life for 9 years. We have been through a lot. She's called me one of her closest friends, but never her best friend.

Wendy came over with the family to spend a fun day before school starts with us. One of the first things she said was, "I have an opening for best friend. You get to be it." I think I won by default because nobody else lives around here :)

She moved me to her top spot on her myspace friends list AND she made plans to spend her 5th wedding anniversary with us next Saturday!!!

This is what we would look like if we took a Totem Pole picture (I really suck at photoshop, can you tell?)

i've never called you my BFF?!? that's odd. i refer to you as my BFF ALL THE FRICKEN TIME!!! ask my parents, or Bri, or my close disney friends. when you moved to texas, i cried all the time over my BFF leaving me for a self absorbed state. i ended up in counsling cause your move was the "straw that broke the camels back" in all the shitty crap that i had been dealing with. take a look at my #1 myspace friend. you've been in that spot since the day you accepted my friend request. if i've never called you my BFF to your face, then i apologize. you truly are. nobody knows me better than you. you are the family that i am fortunate enough to choose. i love you dear friend. so this "wendy" you speak of, can totally step off (kidding of course).

once upon a time i thought of you as my best friend (of course it was after the whole enemy because of a certain boy thing passed :)). i feel sad that we have grown so far apart, but i am happy to still be in contact with you.
