Last night I met up with maggie, who had been my neighbor and best friend in montreal until i was 5. we wrote to each other until the end of high school, but haven't seen each other since we were little. it was really fun. a little awkward at first... finding things to talk about was hard... a little like a first date! I wonder if as children we actually pick our friends based on personality and compatibility, or if it's just location? we lived next door to each other, and our moms were friends, so i always assumed that's how we became friends. but now that we're all grown up, and our moms aren't around, i still really like her. is that just coincidence? or was I a really smart 5 year old?
