    I had a best friend...lets call him Lee. We were best friends until 5th grade...then I don't know why but we just stopped talking. Before I realized it we had drifted so far apart, and I was to self-conscious to try and talk to him at school, and to shy to call him over to...

    But I guess that's just mainly because I'm lucky enough to still see her on a daily enough basis for me not to forget her. Plus, her wacky day in the life of a bobble story ensures it even more, I don't think I'll ever forget what fun THAT was.

    Yes, I remember my best from childhood because they are still one of my best friends today. This friend is a girl as well, and I remember as little kids we sort of felt out of place being a boy and a girl and being friends. I don't really know why.
