    I had an awful trend in grade school.  I would befriend someone and they would move away.  It happened almost every year from 1st grade until 8th.  Maybe that's why I LOVED high school so much...people finally stuck around long enough for me to really hang on...

    Memories

    We met when we were in 1st Grade. She needed a purple crayon and I didn't want to share. She cried and I felt bad and gave her. We had sleepovers, tea-parties, play dates and all of that. Sadly, in Grade 6 she had to leave and it was one of the most emotional moments of my life...

    Because I'm Gay

    When I was 17 I told my best friend that I liked willies instead of muffies. He then told me that he could no longer be my friend. Now, he will cross rather than speak to me. He even gets his boys to do the same.

    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.

    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.
