A to Z Challenge

F is for Friend

I met my Best friend in 1987. We were both freshmen at Indiana University.

How did you meet your best friend? (from 3-11, 5 Question Friday)

The first time I met her I was heading for the elevator in the dorm with a heavy basket of laundry piled high. She was standing close so I asked her if she could hit the down button for me ... I thought she was ignoring me because I asked her several times... I then said, "Are you deaf or something?" and did it myself. 1 week later I found myself sitting in her room with some other girls and looked at her and noticed she was wearing a hearing aide!!! Needless to say I felt horrible! We bonded listening to her Mellencamp tapes. Yes tapes, this was right before the big CD explosion :) We have been best buds ever since.

Her name is also Tammy. Yes, it was crazy when we were roomies! She lives in Northern Indiana and I live in Southern Indiana, so we don't get to see each other as much as we would like, but when we do get together we always have a blast and things are always the same ~ It is like we are still those 2 young clueless college girls having fun - we just pick right up where we left off, there is never any awkward moments just because we have been apart for awhile, that is when you know you have a best friend that will always be there for you. I love you, Tammy.

Very sweet! I didn't keep contact with anyone from college. Well, except my cousins but barely even them. Indiana girls at Indiana U listening to an Indiana dude.
