This is the only recent photo I have of myself and my best friend, Nicole, taken in October 2014. That’s sad, especially since I could just whip my camera, lights, and remote out and make a really nice photo happen.
That got me started thinking about how long we’ve been friends: over 25 years! I thought about all the memories we’ve shared, the things we’ve done. How we’re alike: WE LOVE PRINCE!! And how we’re different: I’m punctual. I believe she was late for her own birth. (Love you anyway, if you’re reading this!).
Then I started thinking: How many of us have best friends and don’t have a high-quality picture together? We do have one, but it’s 20 years old. When I really feel like searching through Flickr to find it, I’ll show you.
How many of us have taken the time to really think about how meaningful the BFF relationship is? If your best friend were no longer here, would there be anything but old pictures to remember her by?
That’s happened to me once, and I don’t want it to happen again.
So, since I’m always coming up with new ideas, I want to share this one with you.
I’m going to start a website showcasing best friends. I want to have a picture and then some kind of description of that friendship. If you think this is a good idea, would you participate and share?
This is how you participate:
Send a clear picture of yourself and your best friend. It doesn’t have to be recent, but if you don’t have a recent picture, I encourage you to take one. I know I will!
Both of you answer the following questions:
- How did you meet?
- How long have you been BFFs?
- How are you alike?
- How are you different?
- What do you like to do together?
- What is one thing you appreciate about your BFF?
Send your pictures and answers to: Mrsday AT Mrsday.com.
I’ll start the site when I have at LEAST 10 entries besides my own. so get to picture-taking and answering questions. Most important of all, please share this with others. The more BFFs, the more better!
