but you are one of the biggest goofballs i know. thank god we have the same sense of humor and love for bad 80's comedies ("who's harry crumb?" being high on the list). there are just so many things that no one else in the entire world could find funny the way we do.
i love that we talk on the phone every day, despite the fact that we live on opposite ends of the country.
it's just so amazing to me that i have spent my entire life with you. that we have watched each other grow, that we've been there for each other through difficult times, supported each other during our hypochondriac moments (because you know how frequent those are) - and we somehow always manage to laugh. i think i laugh more with you than just about anyone. someone once said to me that the best thing she ever did was give her daughter a sister. i always think of that, of how lucky i've been to have this built-in best friend my entire life.
so happy birthday, hope! you are definitely a
