Friendship is: secretly giving people nicknames so only we know who we are talking about. No need for explanations. Always knowing what the other is thinking. Comfortable silences. Long phone calls about nothing. Annoying each other and thoroughly enjoying it. Being each other’s therapists. Sharing every little detail about every little thing. The ability to talk absolute nonsense and have that nonsense respected. Not being able to wait to tell each other stuff. Laughing, laughing, laughing, laughing and laughing. Forgiving each other no matter what. Conversations impossible for others to understand. A reassuring presence. A whole conversation with just one look. Never getting bored with each other’s blabber. Total certainty, total truth.
