Do you have a best friend? Someone who is really close to you, almost more like family than friend. Just curious how common something like this is. I do, so I'll give mine for example. I met the guy when I moved up to Washington as a kid from Texas, he moved up here a bit before I did from Louisiana. I met him in 1993 and we have been friends ever since. Other than a few years stretch when I was in College and he was living somewhere else I've always been around the guy. We actually lived together for a while I still go over to his house most Sunday's to watch football, we still buy Christmas gifts for each other because we can't count on anyone else to get us stupid kid stuff like games and comic books for shits and grins now that we are older. I've known the guy damn near 20 years, he is more family than anything, including his family. So I was curious if anyone else had a situation like that.
