Unexpected Turn for the Sappy

Comments (5)

Sarah Brown's archives make for some really good reading. I'm just going to throw that out there. I've already read every entry from beginning to end once, and I'm plowing through them again. One of the posts that really struck me today was this September 2002 entry, mostly because it mentions Best Friend necklaces. I just so happened to spend some time with my elementary school best friend this week, as previously mentioned on Twitter, and we totally rocked the BFF jewelry back in the day.

Friends

Behold. The middle portion of the Best Friends Forever necklace set that I shared with my two favorite friends, Sarah and Tami. There were three little puzzle piece people who could be joined together to form a magical trio of awesome. Connecting the pieces, which was always a lot easier when you weren't wearing the necklaces, made us feel like we were superheros combining our strengths and powers. It was quite the sacred ceremony.

I would love to have a reunion with these lovely ladies to catch up on what's happened since we parted ways for high school. But even more than that, I would like to thank all of my current super cool BFFs (that includes you) for sticking by me even without kick-ass puzzle people around your neck. I love you all.

I know how to ruin a perfectly touching, heartwarming entry!

I had one of those necklaces. My "best friend" threw out the half I gave her. I watched her do it.

Fast forward a few years. I decided to do the necklace thing again, with a different friend. They were little vials that had metal bars inside, one said "best" and one said "friend."

The girl I gave the other half to filled it with flour (or some other powdery, white substance) and got suspended from school.

The end.

Scrangie - I love you so very, very much. I hope I'm still allowed to say that now that you're married.

P.S. Those other girls are dumb.

My friends and I used to just cut our palms and shake hands.

There's nothing like a good blood brother.

Thursday's Child - Every time I think of cutting palms, I think of the scene in Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers where the dude just whips out a knife and is like, "We will die for Saruman." Then again, I have a hard time not thinking of LOTR scenes with every breath I take.
