Everything about that phrase makes me happy. It reminds me of potato sack dresses, juggling a pile of books in our arms between classes, basking in the warm sun sitting on square wooden picnic tables and most of all of the uncontrollable laughter that rips into our sides when my school friends are all together. Where would I be without them?
The same jokes are told over and over again (like the one above) along with new ones we have learnt in our years apart. "Hi-5!" I shout to my awesome friend Alex. Annie turns around and remarks, "It doesn't even count as a Hi-5 her hand isn't big enough." The small size of Alex's hands as well as Julia's height, Bel's lovingly painful bear hugs and Tiffany's lame jokes are things which never leave us no matter how far apart we are, or how much we have experienced in our separate lives.
