We Used To Be Friends

After watching 13 Reasons Why on Netflix last week, and the many conversations that have followed, I have likened the show to another teen drama, Veronica Mars. Hearing this song in my car today, solidified what I was posting about. I am going to take a different approach to this one, in the form of an open letter.

Dear Felipe,

If you are reading this, I hope all is well man. Can you believe it has been over 10 years since we first met in that university auditorium? It was that welcome for international students...and we hit it off like how I imagine Rocky & Ferg hit it off. We were A$AP before A$AP. 

I am writing to let you know, that whenever I hear this song, I think of lazying around Furzedown Halls (do you remember all the characters that lived there?), tube rides into Central London, shots of fiery Absinthe, frozen pizzas, NBA Street, and your recommendation to watch Veronica Mars (despite my hesitations). That show got me through home sickness, and I appreciate you man, for helping me through that.

Kristen Bell, I will write you a separate letter to thank you for everything too. I have had a crush on you since Neptune High. You are on my list. Laminated.

And last but not least, the memories of my T-Mobile Sidekick...the same one Veronica Mars used IRL to warn Mac that it was Beaver. Homie. That was just the first year...and we had some fun memories and adventures in the years to follow. A long time ago, we used to be friends...and we should catch up again soon!

Sincerely,

Michael
