…but it seems like both my parents find it necessary to frequently mention the fact that some of my best friends have moved away for a time. They usually find the opportunity to do so when I’m doing something that normally all the gang would be doing together, or when it just might be obvious that I’m missing said friends dreadfully.
Yes, thank you, Mum & Dad, I didn’t remember that my best friends are gone. I needed to be reminded that there haven’t been any impromptu trips/hangout times, or crazy shenanigans involving pets, or the fact that I haven’t been able to cook fun breakfasts for anyone, or having someone walk to work with me, or have random jam sessions, or stay at the house until really late with everyone crammed on the couch, or whatever.
Because I always forget that these people had become major part of my life for two years running, and the only time I can “hang out” with them now is on Skype. So yeah, I need a reminder, ya know?
