Essay About Ice Cream

Improved Essays
It was early September, so early that school hadn’t started yet. I received a text from a family friend, telling me he was on his way to come pick me up. Earlier in the week, I had a falling out with a friend, and I really needed someone to talk to. I texted TJ, asking if we could do something, to get my mind off of everything. He happily obliged and offered to take me to ice cream on Wednesday. When he pulled into the driveway, my heart leaped to my throat. I was finally going to have to come to terms with the fact that my best friend and I were fighting, and would have to relive it all again. I knew TJ was going to ask, and I got nervous. I sighed and hopped into the car, shaking those negative thoughts from my mind. As he pulled out of …show more content…
TJ, let me pay for it. Seriously give me my money back. It’s only going to be like four dollars! This isn’t fair! Let me do it!” I exclaimed in the middle of Menchie’s, hopping around, and trying to snag my money out of his hand. He had sneakily grabbed my money from my hand while I was piling strawberries on my chocolate ice cream. He know was holding way above his head while we stood in line, failing to hide his smile as I hopped around trying to retrieve my money. He is about a foot taller than me, so it was difficult for me to grab my money. I knew that the family in front of us probably was annoyed but I didn’t care, TJ was being annoying. I just wanted my ice cream, and I wanted to pay for it. As soon as we were up, he slid his card over to the cashier, slid my money into my back pocket, and wrapped me in a big hug while I rolled my eyes in annoyance, huffing and crossing my arms. When we walked outside, I groaned and whined “Why couldn’t you have just let me pay? I’m capable of paying for it.” He laughed and said “Lex, it isn’t that big of a deal, don’t be annoying. We are both cranky and this is going to get us nowhere.” And with that, he dug into his ice cream, indicating that we are not going to continue this fight. When TJ and I fight, it’s never anything actually worth fighting about. Usually we are cranky when we fight, over silly things. Who will win the NFL/college game? We most definitely fight about that. We have never gotten into a true …show more content…
He’s my best friend and brother, no denying that. Some of my friends try to be funny and say things like “He’s just a silly boy!” or “He’s a senior Lexi, you guys can’t be that close”, but it isn’t that simple. I wouldn’t be writing this if that was the case. My friends will always have a best friend throughout high school, but mine? Mine leaves in less than 10 months for college. The one who has constantly stood by my side for 5 years, will be gone. They can’t possibly understand that. You must be thinking, my goodness is this girl dramatic! But you see, TJ and I have an unbreakable bond, it’s hard to find those types of people. I know he will always be just a call or text away. It may not be right away, but he will be there. Just know, you can’t really put a limit on a pair of best friends. We are just different but I wouldn’t have it any other way. I love it and I love him. I thank God for him every single day because he has been a true blessing on my
