Happy National Best Friends Day!
Saturday, June 8th is National Best Friends Day! A day to look at your homies and say "hey, can I bum five bucks!" I'm very lucky to not only have one, but three best friends. Yes people may say that their significant other is their best friend, or their sibling is their best friend. If that is true for them, awesome. For me, it's not. Does that mean I love them any less? Nope! There's things I do with my wife, that I won't do with my best friends... usually sex is involved. On the other side, there are things that I do with my best friends that I won't do with my wife... usually because my wife would say "No!". My best friends have never tricked me into believing I killed Santa Claus, that is why my brother is not my best friend. Those people mean the world to me, but I don't put them in the same group as I do my "best friends".
Evan and I met in first grade. We then by some act of God or force of nature had the same home room teacher every year up till 7th grade (you know, when classes are more split up). Birthday parties at Aladdin's Castle & Godfather's Pizza, sleep overs playing video games till 5am in the morning, good times.
Alex & Eugene joined the best friend group in 5th grade. I don't remember exactly how. I assume it was some sort of group project and we all just clicked. We graduated high school in 2000 and still continue to hang out 19 years later. Life has made it more complicated for us to get together, families, jobs, etc., but we at least do Birthday's and the occasional movie night. I hope everyone can find at least one person, that no matter where they are in the world, you can call upon them in times of need or times of boredom. I'm grateful to have three!
Enough of all the mushy feely stuff, here's a funny best friend song from Adam Sandler! Happy National Best Friend Day!
