The Friday Five

1. Do you remember your first best friend? Who was it?
I believe my first best friend was Nathan, who I like to call my ex-fiancé because we were going to get married (whether he liked it or not) when I was four.

Worth mentioning, however, is my second best friend, Jenny, in whose clutches I was, to varying extents, from kindergarten up to fifth grade. From kindergarten to third grade, I wasn't allowed to have any other friends besides Jenny. If she was absent, I had to play alone. She, on the other hand, could take off with whoever she wanted, whether I was there or not. It's so young to be trapped in an abusive relationship.

2. Are you still in touch with this person?
Neither. I have actually blogged a story about how not in touch with Nathan I am.

3. Do you have a current close friend?
Robin and Cheryl are my best gal-pals here in Ann Arbor.

4. How did you become friends with this person?
Cheryl's family lives down the street from me, and our moms used to walk the dogs together when they were pregnant with us. Later, we were in the same elementary school, but in different classes. We were in the same gymnastics class at one point, so I sort of met her then, but we went our separate ways once we got back to school. In second grade, there was a school post office, so I wrote to her because she was the only person I knew outside my class. In third grade, we finally had the same teacher, so we became friends. Cheryl can probably tell these stories better than I can; that's why we call her Rain Man.

I bumped into Robin on the kindergarten playground once. Then we both got up and met each other. It took her a while to pry me away from Jenny, but we've been pretty good to go ever since.

5. Is there a friend from your past that you wish you were still in contact with? Why?
I guess I would like to see people like Grace (she's the one who first called me "srah"), but I haven't seen her in so long, I don't know if we would have enough in common to stay in contact. So... just the Vichy crowd then.

I just remembered I had a dream last night and Grace was in it! That's it, that's all I remember. Not a very good comment. I do remember finding out that she went to some university outside of Cali.

I see that you chose not to mention that when Jenny ditched you while at our house, she would try and make you jealous by playing with me.

Last night, Mommy and I were talking about how my relationship with Nathan's brother always seemed more solid, because he remembers my name and never announced that he wanted to be a "freeboy."
