Turning Back Time
My best friend went to another school in the town next to mine and while we were not old enough to drive, we kept in touch by phone. I remember we used to talk on the phone all hours of the night even when we had school the next day. She told me a bit ago, how I would tell her I was tired and asked her to tell me a story on the phone. Sounds crazy huh? She would tell me stories until I fell asleep. I remember talking on the phone with her in the mornings while getting ready to go to our different schools and we would sing songs on the phone. She remembers that no matter whose house we went to, even as we got older, the first thing we would do is turn on a curling iron. It had to be one that would heat up in 30 seconds!
This friend was the best friend I could ask for and we share many memories. We both have two children now but are lives are still quite the same. We aren't always happy and we both have a lot of issues. Could mistakes we made back then be the reason for our problems now? A couple of years back we bumped heads all the time and even had stopped talking for awhile. She didn't agree with where my life was going, but now, she sees it more clearly. She understands everything I was going through because now she is going through it.
So yeah, I guess this is sort of a depressing post, I just think back at all of my past and wish I could change things sometimes. I wish that I had a second chance at certain things. OK. Actually this may have something to do with watching "Lost" this past week and the story I am analyzing for English. Oh well, we all get a rambling post sometimes!
You're lucky in that you have such a friend. I don't trust anyone enough to really let anyone get close enough that I would consider having a "best" friend; not anymore. But then, I've always been a bit jaded. ;)
This was a really good post - got me thinking.
