So You Want To Be My Best Friend...

So, I was going to give you all a list of all the people I have ever been friends with, but then I realized that I would then have to come up with pseudonyms for all of them... and that is a lot of pseudonyms. So instead, I give you the steps to becoming my best friend (because you know you want a fancy pseudonym).

1. Remember my name. 
I know, this is super difficult. I can't tell you the number of times I have been called Rachelle (which I actually like that name. It's just not mine). 

2. Ask to hang out with me.
I can't tell you the number of times I wasn't sure that someone was my friend until they invited me to do something. Also, I always have this fear that if I call someone to hang out and they don't want to, then they'll hang out with me because they feel like they have to. 

3. Listen to me. (AKA don't cut me off)
Maybe this should actually be a how not to make me hate you list... anyway, I have spent a lot of my life listening to other people because they cut me off, and while I would love to listen to you, there's got to be reciprocation.

4. Make a list of all the things we should do.
Somehow with almost every best friend I've ever had we've created a list of things we should do together. Hike someplace. Go ride horses. Drive somewhere...

5. Get into the inside jokes.
Because we will have a lot of them. Probably too many. It's a thing I will not apologize for. 

6. Love me for me, and I'll love you for you.
We don't have to be exactly the same, that would be boring and probably annoying. I don't have to approve of everything you do and you don't have to approve of everything I do, but if you love me anyway, then you are a keeper my friend. 

7. Be loyal.
Enough said.

Ok so there it is! Alright, here is the list of best friends too...
1. Purple Leader
2. Hair Cutter
3. Horse Rider
4. Prima Ballerina
5. Two Pint
6. Bruiser
7. Hooker
8. Paper Rose
9. Smiles
10. The Best of Both Worlds
11. Breakfast at Tiffany's
12. Wingman
13. Care Bear 
14. Super Great
15. Ginger Snap

So, what does it take to be YOUR best friend? 'Cause hey, I'd like a fancy pseudonym too :)

Happy Random Fact Wednesday! Hope you all have a great day!
