Although the definition is easy, friendships are not always as easily described. We are merely allowed simple adjectives to describe our closest relationships. A good friend, my close friend, best friend, a childhood friend, and dear friend simply are not enough. However it is impossible to deny the nearly infinite meaning in such simple words. Below are my memories of August 14th, 2001, a day that I spent in the company of my best friends. However August 14th was just one out of 88 splendid days that I lived at 2020 East.
I had these pictures put onto a photo CD, so if anyone would like the high resolution copies, just let me know.
The boat ride
Tubing on the river has at all times been enjoyable, however that afternoon was superb. The sun was gleaming as we set out onto the river. Jeremy, Alex, Beth, Holly, Anne, and I took the boat out and had a spectacular time. Beth even managed to get up on the water skis, a feat that impressed me to the highest degree seeing as I had a difficult time last I tried. This day we even remembered to bring along the cokes.
What afternoon would be complete without a grill out? This afternoon wouldn’t, that’s for sure. Davey and I picked up the big grill and carried it back to 2020 East. Under Jeremy’s “supervision”, Ben and Davey put in a new burner and we were soon feasting on bratwursts!
Smile for me!
We feasted on bratwurst into the hours of darkness. Once everyone had their fill of broiled cow it was time for some pictures!
Now for something completely different, pictures of everyone!
At the movies
Now that I had taken my share of pictures, we were off to see a movie! This one time, at band camp… ask Anne!
Back at the house, Ben had a score to settle with Davey and Dictionary.com.
My best friends
Before I could comprehend what had happened, the day had left me. Tomorrow I would be leaving my friends. I took this as a sign that more pictures were required.
Hot Hot Hot
Now my pictures were all gone, but wait! There is one left!
As nighttime slowly raised its head upon us, I said my goodbyes to these people to whom I am closest in the world. Although it is sad to leave, I know that the goodbyes I spoke are not everlasting, but merely well wishes until I see them all again. Best friends are forever.
Dedicated to my friends who are my 2020 East memories.
Ben, Jeremy, Alex, Davy, Steve, Trish, Anne, Erik, Sarah, Kayla, Mike, Scott, Josh, Jenna, Lisa, Tracy, Kimmy, and Sara!
