I made a friend today. His name is Earl. We haven’t really talked about it yet, but he might be my best friend ever. I’m trying not to make a big deal of it, so don’t tell him. I’m playing it cool, pretending that I’m a very busy and important person but secretly when I’m not hanging out with Earl, I’m at home knitting more friends to add to my collection.
Anyway, I’m pretty sure Earl likes me too. Today we played this game where he ran away from me and I chased him, he hid from me and I had to look in all the cupboards until I found him, and this other game where he fronts like he doesn’t want to be my friend and I laugh it off then force-hug him. We totally bonded.
After it was decided that we were friends for life, I tried to take him home to show my mum that I’d made a friend and he joked around and said he didn’t want to come, it was SO funny. He’s SUCH a joker, always saying “Claire, leave me alone” and then I follow him around until he pays attention to me. I also suggested this game that I know he LOVES called put stuff on Earl.
Right now we’re making plans for more Earls (so I can have more friends) but for now, I’ve made a drawing to show everyone that YES, I do have a friend. A best friend, actually. I know you’re pretty jealous, but try to be happy for me. It’s not everyday someone finds their best friend.
