I was working in the ICU and I hear one nurse say to another nurse ” I’ll be your best friend if you being me a rubber band.”. That really made me chuckle because it brought me right back to those days when I’ve said that myself to my little girlfriends (and some boys) .
Did you use that phrase as a kid? I used it a lot. Kids all around me used it to get what they wanted. “if you come play with me I’ll be your best friend” ” if you let me borrow your bike I’ll be your best friend!
Life was so simple then. All it took was to say you’d be someones best friend to get someone to come out and play. I hardly think that things are simple for kids these days. It’s all about having the latest sneakers, the latest video game or the best clothes.
