If there is one person in the whole wide world, whom you can count upon to share your madness, and be your partner-in-crime, it is your best friend. You can be sure about the fact that they won’t judge you whatever might come, and will take the bullet (even mummy’s flying chappal) for you! These are your brothers/sisters from another mother, quite literally, and sane or insane, you love them the way they are. Let us take a quick peek down the memory lane and refresh those things that you did and still do, only with your besties, coz if there is one person who has the right to wreck your totally sorted life, it is your meilleur ami!
Bunking School or College and accidentally coming up with the same story to save each other’s behinds. Minds work the same way after all.
Getting drunk together and making long speeches about your exes and how you still haven’t gotten over them.
Oh! Did we mention that the aforesaid drunken long speeches included abusing your uptight boss and ranting about how your current job sucks!
You would rather leave your job than missing an important event in your best pal’s life, and the feeling is mutual for both of you.
Talking about each other’s sex lives, coz ooh! nothing can spice it up like the bestie’s advice.
Sharing stories of heartbreak and letting each other know how worthless the respective exes were.
Crashing at each other’s place and forgetting that you are not at home, because you are at home where your best friend is.
Make up funny code names for all the people in your life and sharing secretive laughs leaving everyone else around you baffled.
Chat, and chat, and chat some more. Online, off line, on call, or in person, you just can go on and on incessantly when you are with your best friend.
Chuck the diet plan that started yesterday and finish a packets of chips and chocolates together over the latest juicy gossip.
Truth! Yes, you share your deepest and darkest secrets that no one knows about you, with your best pal, and know that it is safe with them.
Because, in the words of Ted Mosby from How I Met Your Mother,
“In the end, you’ll know which people really love you. They’re the ones who see you for who you are and no matter what, always find a way to be at your side.”
