I miss you. We were attached at the hip for over a decade. You were my “plus one” at rock shows. I learned to love camping (even if I just couldn’t get with the rainbow hacky sacks). You had a kid, I didn’t. I stayed in the city, you moved to the ‘burbs. “Remember that time your cat projectile vomited on that guy who stayed over?” It still cracks me up. I see you every day over on FacePlace. But I haven’t talked to you in six months. Still, I know you’ll be there, and I’ll be here, after everyone else has left the party.
This week we take a minute to celebrate our BFFs — the women who we’ll always be latched to, who own a large part of us, even if we’ve drifted away from each other and into our own little lives.
This week on TueNight:
- Lauren Young shares the lifelong crew of 12 friends she’s maintained since preschool.
- Stacy Morrison is still making best friends in her 40s. Go figure.
- Tina Rowley laments the break-up of a longtime friend.
- Kristin Booker tells us which 8 girlfriends we all need in our lives.
- In Front to Backlist, Bethanne Patrick gives us three reads about friendship.
- And Heather Barmore reminds us that sometimes we need the anti-friend friend.
