You get best friends. Pick-me-up friends. Party friends. Cry-over-the-phone friends.
Sometimes if you are very very lucky, you get a friend that you have had all your life.
Quintus and his friend Michael, have been friends since they could realize there is such a thing as friends. They went to the same day mom, started pre-school on the same day and have slept over at each other’s homes when they were still in nappies.
Just amazing friends.
They went to different primary schools though and we thought that in the end they would just grow apart. This has not happened though. Even though they don’t see near enough of each other, when they DO see each other, it’s as though there has never been any time lost.
They are lucky. Even though they are only 9, they have a life-long friendship.
