I'm here with my girlfriend. We gabbed into the night just like the old days, and it was awesome. C. and I go way back. Way back to a time of few responsibilities and lots of freedom to write fanfiction
Now we have jobs and spouses and responsibilities, but we've remained friends all these years, through some pretty crazy things. My visit this week is kind of a Christmas present to us both, since we just don't have the luxury of getting together like we used to. (Now it's not the travel expense, it's the time!) Our interests have changed... Okay, not really, Now we discuss as-yet-unwritten books while getting manicures, and shop for action figures between window shopping for purses I can't really afford (see above, re: I can never have enough bags). Anyway, we've grown up in the unavoidable ways, but I treasure the fact that our friendship incorporates the new us as well as the old us. And there's nothing like someone who knows what a complete and absolute dork you can be, and loves you anyway.
Besides, we have to stay friends, because she knows where I've buried all the bodies.
What about you guys? Do you have a friendship that's transformed with time and (relative) maturity?
