10 years is a long time…
- Unusual Nicknames
There’s a whole spectrum of nicknames, widely ranged and unique. You never question them, because the weirdness is just what makes them lovable.
- Screensavers & Contacts
- Communication with Incoherent Sounds
English is overrated anyway. Enough said.
- Evidence of Telepathy
In simple terms, in-syncness. You’ve absolutely convinced yourselves that you’re minds are inherently connected to each other, despite all the evidence otherwise…
- Met their ENTIRE family tree
That means all the uncles, aunts, first-cousins, and even some of the second cousins. It has gotten to the point where family members ask about them before they ask about you.
- Spontaneous Invitations to Dinner
You already treat your house like their own. They’ll treat you less like guests, and more like family
- On-going list of inside jokes
Sorry, outsiders, you might feel like a third wheel. Don’t you just love the color neon yellow?
- Blackmail-worthy photos
- Constant Reminders of “Awkward” Phases
You are a witness to the worst moments and stages of their life. You’re the best source for the countless memories that fall in this category.
- Insults Purely Out of Love
It’s because we love each other enough to be honest. Sure, sometimes they seem like insults, because they usually are. But it’s never meant to be taken too seriously.
- Photo Album Timelines
10 years gives you a lot of time to get to know someone. But in the end, it’s always worth it.
