Thank God for best friends! We had been friends since we were kids and we had seen each other through thick and thin. Neither of us had ever been into boys until now and we could talk for hours about boys that we liked, what it would be like to have our first kiss, and share all of our deepest darkest secrets. We spent hours in each other's rooms talking and wondering and planning, it was kind of like our pastime and I felt so lucky to have her. I think back to all the hours we spent on the phone or at each other's houses, just talking and sitting, hanging out together and being the very best of friends.
