i talked to you last night on the phone! we laughed when i called right at 8 on the button like i used to show up at your door, so punctual and enthusiastic. you make me feel enthusiastic.
we've been friends for 8 years now which is long enough to have pictures together that we're both embarrassed of. like the halifax photo in the dark bar. only now i look at that and see our happy faces, under my hilarious hair.
when i think about how much you've given me, it's almost indecipherable from what i've always had but i'll remember you introduced me to that part of myself and feel thankful.
you try and you're loving and you're smart which are all such commendable qualities in a human being. you are a nice human being.
and you're one of the funniest people i know. like comic funny with how you move and how you talk and that time in cuba when your arms flailed and you hit the lamp and you called me a crumb bum. you know what you are stephanie perkins? you're a crumb bum! my favourite crumb bum in the world.
