Do you remember how we met each other? I was 4, you were 3. I told you that your dog would die one day, so you started crying. Your older sister came up to us and tried to convince you that I was wrong.
Do you remember how we played hide-and-seek? We were hiding inside the building where we lived, and noticed the word “fuck” written on the wall. I told you: “this is a very bad word, never ever say that to anyone”, but then, after some time, I taught you to swear myself.
Do you remember how we liked to play in the yard in winter and build caves? Our favorite place was under my windows, where my grandfather used to pour cold water on himself. We were hiding from some fictional mermaid who wanted to kill us. We loved to shoot down icicles and hide them in our cave.
Do you remember how we laid together on the snow looking at the stars? We dreamed of having CD-player, so we could listen to the song from “Titanic”.
Do you remember how we ran away from the watchman? We were always mocking him, poor old man, I feel sorry for him now…
And how we climbed trees, jumped on the roofs of garages, walked on the fences? We were such monkeys, my grandmother was always amazed by us.
Do you remember how we played with paper dolls, and then with Barbie? How we performed for my grandmother, we sang songs, danced, showed her tricks…
Do you remember how you went to music school with me because my teacher always brought us candies? She was so kind… And after class we loved jumping from the trees to the snowdrifts.
Do you remember how you fell out of a tree? You broke your arm and hit your chin. We did not know what to do, so we ran over to your sister for help. And she carried you in her arms like a brave warrior. Then you were taken away by the ambulance and we thought you were offended by us, for leaving you there alone.
Do you remember when I wanted to teach you how to swim and you nearly drowned me? Your sister saved me!
Do you remember how we missed the Wushu class? I fell off the roof on the ice and hit my back. It was so painful, I couldn’t breathe, but you were laughing at me. Then I returned home and pretended everything was okay and nothing hurt..
Do you remember how we planned on running away from our homes? Or how we wanted to live in the forest and become the saviors of the world?
Do you remember how we watched “Friends” and pretended to understand jokes? Do you remember our first favorite TV show “Charmed”? It was sacred. We collected everything we could about it. We tried not to miss a single episode. Do you remember how we wanted to watch the new episode, but your parents did not allow us, so we were crying…
Do you remember how we were obsessed with Smallville, then Lost, Desperate Houswives, Supernatural? We had those special notebooks where we wrote down the aphorisms from our favorite TV shows, and then we used them at school to sound cool. And how we called for Bloody Mary, played “Charmed” and called upon spirits.
Do you remember our first punk rock band Sum-41? How we came to the store to download our favorite songs, and liked the seller, so then we came there very often just to look at him. Once we even left the french fries for him and ran away lol.
Damn, do you remember how we loved to wash in the bathroom together, when we were little?.. Do you remember how we promised to be best friends forever?… Do you remember?…
