My brother started dating this girl. I was 9, he was 16. They worked at Burger King together. I was excited to have a new person around the house… cause I was a kid and I liked to show off. Come to think of it, I was probably pretty damn obnoxious. So this girl brought her little sister over to play with me/occupy me.
I was playing Lion King for Sega Genesis and I couldn’t get past level four, the stampede. It wasn’t side scrolling like the rest of the game and it was really throwing me. Sandra came in, introduced herself, then dominated the level for me. The rest is history.
She’s been my best friend since the moment I knew she could kick ass at video games and loved Disney. It’s 20 years later and things haven’t changed. We still play video games together (though, we have to do it online since we don’t live near each other) and we still both love Disney. I think we can both quote Pocahontas word-for-word without even turning the movie on.
My girl’s birthday was last week and she wanted some Biscoff fudge. How am I to deny my best friend such a simple request?
Here’s Sandra’s birthday fudge.
