On Bees and Efs: Best Friends Forever

Do you — or did you ever — have a Best Friend? Do you believe in the idea of one person whose friendship matters the most? Tell us a story about your BFF (or lack thereof).

Yes, I have had several best friends—in phases. It is  but natural that as you pass from one stage of your life to the next, you meet different folk but there’s always one person who you gravitate to. That person becomes your best friend for that period.

The difference is that this friendship lasts and is not a passing ship in the night.

But truth be told, your best friends forever are your family members, your siblings. And yes, my siblings are mine. We may argue, call each other names but we will always be there for each other, through thick and thin.

And my best friend of all—my darling mother!
