In my over-exuberance, I jumped the gun (as we sports experts say) and said yesterday was Best Friend Day. It wasn’t. It was Best Friend Day Eve (OK, I just made that part up to make myself feel better about messing up).
Today (really, I double checked) is Best Friend Day.
There are those (and this is as good a time as any to be one of Those) who believe every day should be Best Friend Day. There are those who act like every day is Best Friend Day (check it out here). And there are those (moi) who just get confused looking at the calendar.
Here are 5 Ways to Celebrate Best Friend Day.
Get together. Play a game of hoops, have a glass of wine or a beer, watch paint dry. It doesn’t matter as long as you’re together—you’re BFFs.
Don’t get together. Sometimes BFFs find themselves separated by vast distances. Actually, this happens often. So call, Facetime, Skype, send a carrier pigeon. However you do it, talk.
Regenerate a friendship. Sometimes we lose touch with someone who was a great friend. Seeing their occasional update on Facebook doesn’t really count as being in touch. Let your friend know he or she is in your thoughts.
Make a new friend. Once upon a time, your best friend wasn’t yet your best friend. Perhaps you hadn’t met yet. Perhaps you hadn’t gotten to know each other yet. Perhaps you were too absorbed in something else to make room in your life for a bestie. Perhaps a small misunderstanding had caused you to loathe the very oxygen the other breathed. Whatever. You got over it, and see where you are now. So perhaps it’s time to meet another new friend.
Pat a friend. Don’t forget the furry friends among us. Spend some snuggle time with the four-legged among us.
