So my best friend is moving to you know where to do you know what very soon. (Have I said too much?) And I will miss her. Very very much. So here we go, a list of fun moments we have had together in honor of my friend:
*Bandaging our eyes (with Kelly) in order to make my dad feel less weird about having a gauzed-over eye. Telling people we were injured in the riots.
*Hit-the-wall-overtired elf dances.
*Breadsticks and vats of sauce. Handfuls of mints. She always paid. (Let me modify that verb. She always pays. That kind of insinuates you should take me out one last time, no?)
*Family reunions. People quit asking who you were or why you came. :)
*Going to ska-ska-SKA shows together. (PICK IT UP, PICK IT UP!)
*Oh my. The highlighter-green pants.
*The time you took down a cage-fighter with a broom. Granted, he wasn't a cage-fighter yet, but still. It was wild.
*Hiding behind the dog-food in Walmart. In a shelf.
*Getting a really-excited calls from OshKosh: "I just wrote a paper!" (For the record, I particularly liked the Jonathan one and the Asherah pole one.)
*EAT THE CAKE!
*Telling you the story at least five times of how your car was stolen, and having you still not remember it.
*The time we make a cat-delivery. As in, drove to Arthur to give an unsuspecting person a cat.
*Spending years trying to convince someone your coat was my coat and vice versa, for really no reason. Realizing at some point there was no zinger moment. Continuing on anyway.
*You assembling my notebooks! We had to turn them in for a grade, and we would go page-by-page; you showing me what I should have, me digging through piles of napkins and torn pages and scribbled-on candy wrappers, stapling them together, turning it in as if it were regular.
*The tape-game. Ew, and ping-pong.
I think if I let myself, I would go on and on. So for some reason, "ew, and ping-pong" seems like as good a place to stop as any. So now it's your turn! Add to the lists! Go ahead, add!
