I believe that friendship between best buddies happen because of the comfort level that they share along with some similar interests.
I met one such friend, a few years back while I was staying in a hostel. To be precise its in 2009-August. It was just like any other evening. I was standing in the queue with a plate in hands and waiting for my turn for the dinner to be severed.
My mate with whom I was standing whispered into my ears – ‘Look. Look at that girl’
Me- ‘The one who’s tall?’
My friend – ‘No, the one who is very fair and short. Do you know she also works in our company?’
I replied – ‘No’.
The queue was getting longer while this girl; whom my friend pointed was serving her own food and simultaneously chatting with our lady warden. I vaguely remember, she enquired and suggested about different food items that hostel can supply. Not just me but everyone around laughed for funny explanation she gave. I just listened to her and observed what she was doing. Her plate had little of rice, and Dal all around, curry spread – some here and some there. She had bottle under her arms, a glass filled with butter milk in one hand – (which is mentioned that she will share with her roommate) and the plate in another.
‘Don’t you see how messy she is!’ My friend added. I just nodded my head…
She looked at me for some reason and winked naughtily and left running with her plate. Of course, the food along with the overflowing Dal has fallen that traced the path she went. Someone yelled at her pointing the floor and she said… ayyyaaaa – Cliché’ used by Maddy.
Yes – Her name is Maddy. She is my best buddy. I never felt she is an year younger to me. Her thoughts as beautiful as she is, she is smart, very kind, speaks only sense, grounded and she likes me so much :P. I know ‘m lucky to have a friend like Maddy. Don’t exactly remember when we became this close…*touchwood*
We share so much in common; right from pink-color-madness, shopping together, having coffee and talking about our backgrounds and every time we do; we can’t help wondering how similar we were brought up.
I remember learning many new things from her. One such good thing that I have seen and learnt from her was; how easily she gets adapted to any phase of life (*touchwood*). Her ambitions and her life taught me that one needs to be realistic to be happy. I cherish all the wonderful moments we spent together.
We meet thousands and millions of people in life, but a very few remain as the B.E.S.T part of our memories… ..
Messy Mighty Maddy!
