Twelve years ago, I moved in next door. In those years, we've done so much. From creating imaginary disease to infect American Girl dolls, to climbing the tree in my front yard, to going to see Ghostbusters after my first rookie party, to sobbing in each other's arms at your last band banquet. It's been a blast, getting to grow up with you. Wondering why there was yogurt on your TV(note, don't throw yogurt at the TV), the way I knocked every time I came over(three is the magic number, even if it's excessive for a doorbell), sending you vines in the middle of the night(when your legs don't work like they used to before...), to almost meeting in the space between houses to fight. I'm gonna miss you emerging from the bushes into my backyard. You were my first band mom, and the first to introduce me to the ghost in the sewer. I'm going to miss you so much, but not as much that time you puked in my driveway - you shouldn't have eaten that much popcorn. Thank you for these past twelve years. Because I knew you, I have been changed for good.
