And by old I mean *really* old. That's right-this post is dedicated to my dearest friend in the entire world: Liz! Her birthday is tomorrow and she's turning 21. Oh boy. And I can do it here because I know she'll read it, and this is a more creative birthday post than something through facebook.
Liz and I have been friends since we were about five which means, if you do the math, about fifteen years. I think it's pretty safe to say that I know her pretty well. I know that her heart is definately the softest in the world-she puts up with my begging for rides all the time, for instance. I know that when she dedicates herself to something she really dedicates herself to it in a way that I admire. I know that tomorrow she could legally drink if she wanted to but she won't ;) I also know that I am incredibly fortunate to have her as a friend. She has been there for me a thousand times over, probably at times when she couldn't afford to waste any emotional energy on me but did anyway-so, Liz-this one's for you (because I still have tons of Pride and Prejudice reading to do and don't have time to elaborate), Happy Birthday tomorrow! You're incredible.
