Can you guess? | Friend

I met him when I was 9,

His name is Kitch Roger,

Or sometimes it’s Stein,

Or ‘Clock watcher’,

Depends on my mood or his mood.

He doesn’t speak nor move,

But I am harmoniously in love,

Drowning in its soft chords,

And its blue slender body,

He was a dream come true.

I carry him sideways,

Or on my back,

Sometimes with its case,

I walk with him with pride,

He’s always by my side.

He is filled with pain and sorrow,

Of joy and happiness,

And he’s as melodic as Gary Barlow,

He’s always been there for me,

When no one else was.

FUN FACT: There is actually a word to describe the road-like reflection of the moon on water — MANGATA — and it’s Swedish!

1. Counting Down The Days

Literally. You have the reunion circled on your calendar and each day you get to cross off is a step closer to true happiness. Not to mention, you both text each other with a daily reminder of how much time is left. « OH MY GOD! I SEE YOU IN TWO DAYS, AHHH!! »

2. See Each Other And YELP

The moment has finally arrived and it’s total. sensory. overload. It’s kind of like seeing a small puppy or eating the most delicious meal — you automatically make some sort of noise. You can’t help it. Doesn’t matter if you’re in public with tons of strangers around, when you see your BFF again after so long you will SHRIEK.

3. The Squeeze Hug

Hugs are glorious, beautiful things that tend to make us human beings feel all happy and gooey-inside. But the ultimate I-really-love-you-and-am-so-excited-to-see-you hug is…
