Hmmmm, best friend in 2nd grade. Thats hard because starting way before 2nd grade, I was in a gang. Not the Crips, the Bloods or the Lords, more like the Little Rascals. We were all best of friends from
Coy, Susan, Elaine, Bobby, Harold, Theresa (my sister) and Tina were the original founders of this gang and we stuck with each other through thick and thin from Pre School through Elementary School and Middle school and then on into High School. Others came and went over the years but we were the permanent players.
If I close my eyes, I can remember a million games of kickball, climbing trees, catching lizards and doodle bugs, water bomb fights, riding bikes, picking oranges, swimming, playing house, doctor and Barbies forever and a day. We would walk in groups from Dawn until dusk during the summer (not in 2nd grade) with nowhere to go, just anxious to spend every waking moment together.
Its funny, I was just reminiscing all of these memories in my mind over the past few weeks. My sister is having a huge 40th birthday bash next month and oh how I would love to be able to find these guys and surprise her by having them there. I just dont have the time or the know how to find them.
