When I was 13 years old, after completion of seventh grade, my family moved to Kansas
City and I started a new school. I met my best friend Dawnitra (D) in eighth grade music class and we have been in each others lives ever since. I would not say that we became best friends instantly, this is a fact that neither of us denies. My hatred for musicals and constant bitching about having to watch them in class annoyed her. And I thought she was a bit mean; she used to trip me in the hallway just to hear me say “Damn it Dawnitra”. Over the last 20 years our friendships have seen ups and downs. I would say more high points than low points. We have grown up, apart, and back together in that time frame. To this day she is my “go to” girl about

Even though we do not live close to each other we still talk all the time.
We had a major falling out over four years ago and I refused to talk to her for almost two years.

When we hung up with each other not only were we both anger as all get up, but nothing got resolved, it might have been worse actually. I decided that I did not want to end things like that so I wrote her a rational and calm letter of everything that had been bothering me. She wrote me back a hot mess angry letter that only pissed me off more than I already was. I wrote her back a
