My best friend was Nick. We usta live as close by as you can out in the boonies. I walked across a path in the woods, crossed a creek over a log and down the edge of a cornfield to get to his house.
We usta work on the farm, go fishing, drink homemade wine, listen to Aerosmith or Big Band music- (which his dad loved).
He worked that farm all his life. My parents ran in weird directions and I worked at Honee Bear-I also ended up back in NYC-which I was not ready for.
It was a good time.
I stopped over to see him last year. He's the same farm boy. Great guy.

EDIT- What I remember most about Nick was his Dad. He was a big drunk Russian. But he would describe WW2, and how horrible it was. Old Nick was more of a father to me than my own father-who could give a f**k less.
his favorite expression was "Who cares?".

My best friend had to die for me to realize that I'll never have a better friend... my brother's wife Gayle.  I met her when I was maybe 8 or 9, my brother David's girl when he was in late '60s high school (there were 5 of us).  Gayle was about 8 years older than me and beautiful !!!  She was 1 year younger than David (9 years older than me) and she was around a "long time" dating the eldest my brother David.  I think it was 1973 when they married!  I took her for granted and we clung to each other when my brother died.  He was a drunk, but she wasn't.  When she died, she had only 2 horses, 2 dogs, and 7 cats in the house, not counting the many "feral" she was feeding.  Crazy cat lady.  She liked Monster movies.  She liked spooky stories.  She liked chocolate.  She liked cats and dogs.  My kinda girl!

A good bad movie is like popcorn for the soul!

I met my best friend online in an arrowhead chat room nearly twenty years ago. We were friendly acquaintances at first who shared a common interest in artifacts, then pen pals, and over the last few years we have become incredibly close, sharing secrets with and about each other that no one else knows about.  And yet, to this day, we have never met face to face.

I don't think I've had a true "best friend" since high school.

My best friend right now is probably my father.

Being an only - and therefore very lonely - child, I had a few good friends growing up in what was then Rhodesia.

Right now, I reckon all of you qualify for the best friend tag.  Smile

I had an ex best friend I got arrested for having child porn on his computer.

One of my ex-bosses would count I guess, even if because of where he now lives and works we don't get to chat very often. We had a blast working together. The year or so we spent working together was just a laugh every day and we used to sneak a laptop in to watch bad movies (2000 Maniacs and Slither both stand out in my memory as ones we rented from the NAAFI just across the road from the bay we worked in). However, he is now a civvy and working in the offshore industry and don't get to meet up very often anymore so I'll go all mushy and say my wife is mine currently. We love doing stuff together and being in each others company.

When I was a kid, my best friend was Bobby. He had cystic fibrosis, so he couldn't run around much or do anything strenuous. We used to go to the movies a lot. We also played a lot of board games at his kitchen table (stuff like Manhunter and a lot of Parker Brothers games). Sometimes we'd take the bus to a comic book store. He would end up in the hospital occasionally and I would go to visit him. He died in 1978 when we were 14. Best friend I ever had.
