i remember you as a young, quiet, lil thing who enjoyed gossiping about nsync. i can’t believe how beautiful and outgoing you now seem.

your sarcastic streak is surprisingly sharp for a 9-year-old. i’m glad you’re growing out of your shyness and holding your own against your sisters.

as soon as we met, we became the type of friends who can miss years of each other’s lives yet never miss a beat.

i clung to the idea of you even as months passed without hearing from you.
i still think of you sometimes.

i hate that.

my earliest memories include singing, giggling and causing trouble at your old house. can’t wait to do more of that with you next week.

your antics always leave me shaking my head — you boys are such troublemakers, but i’m glad my brother has such a great lifelong friend.

my karate moves and soccer-mom van intrigued you from the start, but it’s our badass bocce ball and pool skills that kept us close.
