M- For Hillary

I can count on one hand the number of people I've stayed in touch with since middle or even high school. I know that's not saying much about me, especially with the invention of Facebook which I'm sure I'll end up joining to everyone's surprise one day. But, that's all beside the point.

There is one friend who I know will never escape me. And, to top it all off, today is her birthday! So, this one's for you, Hillary, and probably no one else.

Over the years we've had a few laughs
From counting blue vans to IHOP name gaffs
From laughing at guys in grocery stores
to buying dry ice and water and more

From singing songs as loud as we could
to talking on the phone later than we should
From staying up late with frozen Dr. Peppers
to writing each other in code in letters

All these were fun and memorable too
Still there's more that we've shared between us two.
We've been with each other in spirit or person
to listen to the other when hard times worsened.

We've been with each other in good times and bad
And angered each other with a few fights we've had
But no matter the season of life that we're in
I hope you're my friend till the very end.

Happy Birthday, Hill.
