Well, at least I always thought before that it was mostly the distance that was the issue there. But then just now I realized another root of the problem. These two right here.
I blame my sisters for my lack of the best friend that everyone else seems to have - because gosh darn if it they don't always seem to be there! Whenever I want someone to hang out with, I need some one to talk to, whenever there's a hot British guy to scream over, something irritating to vent about, on the rare occasions I spontaneously decide I want to do something like go shopping or the library... they are the ones who are there to do it with. Maybe I'm just lazy, but I guess when I have two such readily available sisters, I never felt the urge to go out looking for someone to replace them.
I'm pretty lucky in that way I guess. A lot of girls don't have sisters close in age to them, or aren't close in relationship to the sisters that are. And here I have not one, but two people that have been with me for the last 19-17 years and who will continue to be around for a good many more.
So yeah. It's totally their fault that I don't have that one super close best friend. I place the blame completely and irrevocably upon their shoulders.
I don't have a best friend. I have my sisters.
