20 years ago, i wrote a letter to my best friend, ada, with the date, 08.08.1988 and an arrow pointing to said date with the caption reading, "wow! that's a lotta 8's!"
we were young teens who were into 'letter-writing' as our hobby and past-time, even though we saw each other everyday where we would walk to school with each other everyday… still… writing letters to one another was cool. or so we thought.
anyway… it's now 08.08.2008 and i felt an incredible urge to write another, similar letter, with similar, cheesy, inside jokes (such as our nicknames for one another and the way i always signed off with my phone number – ALWAYS – even though she knew it by heart and still does).
i sent it to her and wonder if she even remembers that letter. she should. she thought the whole 'that's a lotta 8's' was hilarious and laughed so hard, she had to sit down.
did i tell you how cool we were?
here's the letter i emailed her:
