I shall return the favor for perfect Hannah:
1. Various memories from elementary school where you were cross with me, because I borrowed your things without asking or some other dumb thing. I was always so scared you’d hate me forever because I thought you were just the coolest, bravest, most grown up and funny person ever and I just wanted you to love me so much.
2. One time we decided our barbies should go to a swanky holiday resort and we decided the best location for this was the bathroom because obviously the best thing about swanky resorts is the swimming pools and the bathroom has three ready-made receptacles. We used the sink and probably splashed water all over the place and just made an awful mess…and then your mom came in, and at first she thought we were having a joint peeing party and was 100% fine with that, but then was not fine when she saw we really were just being messy and dripping water everywhere.
3.In grade eight I discovered msn and for a while you were my only contact because I’d just moved to Kamloops and didn’t have any friends yet. We talked almost every day after school because it was 2003 and that’s just what we all did back then. That was probably when we got to actually “talking” again rather than just a bi-yearly phone call or the odd letter and it was so amazing getting to know you again through our friend the internet and when I was so miserable at school I used to get myself through the days thinking about how we’d probably chat afterwards and it would be great.
4. ALSO the time I came to your 19th birthday and I thought it would be weird to meet your friends and maybe we had grown apart, BUT WE HADN’T! (although the cunt story is a close second placer.) That whole trip actually…the last day we got ice cream with your mom and walked around the beach and stuff…it was just great. 10 out of 10, would holiday again.
5. Pretty much every time we have hung out together since moving here has been capital A amazing and I really can’t choose. (Although story time was indeed a really good one.)
BUT I realized that pretty much everybody I consider a close friend now, I got them all through you and this is the happiest I’ve ever been.
The first time I saw you was when our preschool teacher introduced you to the class as the New Girl and you were wearing an orange polyester pantsuit and a little 90’s ponytail and pretty much everything I have ever wanted since that moment was to have you as a close friend and now not only do I have that but I have everybody else too, and it’s like being friends with all you guys has made me brave enough to become the person I’ve always wanted to be and oh jesus this is an emotional night on tumblr.
