    How Long...has This Been Going On...?

    Where to begin?  Okay, I met my friend, Teresa, about eleven years ago.  We hit it off immediately.  We were instant best friends.  I was living on campus at the time, so I went to her house quite a bit.  I eventually moved to her neighborhood.  Cool...
