10 years is a long time…

  1. Unusual Nicknames

  1. Communication with Incoherent Sounds

English is overrated anyway. Enough said.

  1. 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.

  1. Spontaneous Invitations to Dinner

You already treat your house like their own. They’ll treat you less like guests, and more like family

  1. On-going list of inside jokes

  1. 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.

  1. 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.

  1. 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.
