20. If you were back in grade school, you would have bought “Best Friends” necklaces and worn them everywhere with or without your new friend around. You’d have a person to mark down in your Slam Book next to “Who is your best friend?” You’d know all this friend’s favorite movie stars, who they secretly have a crush on and be willing to pass notes for them during class. People would probably find your friendship as a form of co-dependence. Maybe they’re jealous. Or maybe there’s truth in it. But what do you care? You’re in friend love.
