Yup... that's my quirky friend


Quirky... yes that is the word that comes to my mind when I think about my oldest, closest and best friend. I still remember when I first met her, it was 15 years ago while I was visiting my aunt - she lived 1200 kms away. We both were 13 at that time and we immediately hit it off. She and I were totally opposite, where she was extrovert and outdoorsy, I was one the who mostly kept to herself. Well, like they say opposites attract and I can vouch that it's not just in case of life partners.

While I was growing up, I grabbed every opportunity I got to visit my aunt. Not because I wanted to meet my family but I wanted to meet her and share all gossip and boys' talks. Sadly we met only 4 times in 10 years but we cherished every single moment of it. 4 times we raised hell in her city, starting from long rides, non-stop chats, first sip of varied drinks to first puff of sticks... we did everything together. And despite of long distance, occasional chats and emails we developed the strongest bond of ever-lasting friendship.

We didn't realise how similar we were until we decided to get married. I remember chatting with her before my wedding day that how similar our lives have been? We have fallen for similar guys, gotten our heart broken in similar ways and not to mention, we are marrying guys who are just alike (in mannerism, personalities and perfection) - yes that is her, recalling and remembering our pasts on the eve of my wedding. 

She is my security blanket, my go-to person, someone whom I can talk to without being judged. She is the one on whom I can rely on at all times.

After 14 years of living in separate cities, we finally settled in one. And Oh Dear God have we not rocked our time. I always thought I knew her, but living apart doesn't gives you the benefit of knowing someone so well. She is funny, intelligent and intriguing. Same age but much more fun. Her non-veg jokes would make me uncomfortable but her following expressions always make me laugh. She rises to the occasion when I am in hospital and then falls down on floor laughing after making a stupid joke. She is compassionate to forgive me for not attending her wedding, but will bitch-slap me for falling sick around the occasion. 
Yes, she is quirky in the weirdest way, but isn't that what you look for in your best friend. Someone who is totally opposite yet so similar. I am glad to have her in my life for she has shown me ways of living that I would not have found on my own.

Love you my friend.

See ya soon.
