Response to Tell Us Your Friendship At First Sight Stories:
I met my best friend, sister and platonic life partner when I was a baby, our brothers are the same age and our families have always been close, but we didn’t start to hang out until we were 11. We were in 5th grade and she and her friends were sitting in a tree on the far side of the school yard and they were laughing really loud. So I went up to them and asked if I could join in on the fun. They said yes, and assigned me to a branch in the tree and as I climbed up, they started making farting and flushing sounds. It turned out that the tree was their “toilet tree” and they each had their assigned branch with a “flusher”. So they’d take turns making disgusting noises and flushing. I never had so much fun before in my life, as I did that day. And I never looked back. The other two, we’ve sadly lost contact with, but Sanna and I will be sisters 5ever. We’ve already made plans for how to raise our children and for how we’re going to live together at the nursing home.
