I invite everyone to write a story about memories you had with a friend you had during childhood. Someone that you could never forget. Someone that
was in your life, be it bad, sad, good, happy ect ect.
Here is mine
Ten years ago this year seems like forever since I've known you. The trouble we made and the attention we caused is still a riot to me. The time we
snuck outside at night. Oh my, that is still burned into my brain. We walked to the house of that mean, despiteful little girl that picked on you in
school. We took a big blue smoke bomb with us. We arrived at her house, and I snuck up and opened that window they always seemed to keep open all
through the summer. You lit that smoke bomb and tossed it in. We ran back to your house and up to your room. I thought “Oh what did we get ourselves
into?!?!” That next morning we saw them airing out their house, smoke bellowing out the door. We laughed till we couldn’t breath!
So many adventures that summer, no cares in the world. We were young and felt invincible.
Remember when we sat and watched the Wizard of Oz? We made fun of the monkeys that took Dorothy and Toto away? We memorized the songs and put our own
words to them. Your mom would be so furious! She loved that movie.
And then….we became teens. You decided to hang with the wrong crown. Showing up at my house high as the sky. I was so upset with you, but I stuck by
your side. No matter how much trouble you got into, I was there for you.
I remember the day you hit rock bottom. You decided to become clean and join the United States Army. I was so happy for you. When you left for basic
training I cried my eyes out. I missed you so much.
The day you came back from basic, I knew something changed. I could see it in your face. Your eyes looked careless. Your soul seemed numb. I could
smell the arrogance all over you. They way you acted pissed me off. You thought you were better. You thought you could say anything to anyone and get
away with it because you were in the Army. Then the day you said the wrong thing to that Marine and he beat your ass down. I thank that Marine….
There are so many things I could write about you. All the memories we shared together. It would take a lot of notebooks to write everything in detail.
I tear up thinking about you. You are my best friend. Now you are moving away to Arizona. I pleaded with you to stay in Ohio, but I won’t keep you
from doing what makes you happy.
I bid you farewell, not forever though. I will miss you deeply.
