Why are your besties the best?

Friday seems like the right day to talk about friends. It's the start of the weekend and all the fun stuff you and your friends can do together: sleepovers, swimming (now that it's almost summer!), and a million other things that you can't do when school is in.

It's true that we hear a lot from girls who have problems with friends (arguments, liking the same guy etc.), but I think today we should answer a different kind of question. It's from Shay, who's 10. And I just love it!

Shay asks: What's the best thing about your friends?

I'm so glad you asked! My friends ARE the best. The very best thing about my friends Kate and Piper is that they make me laugh. I don't mean chuckle or giggle. I mean they make me laugh so hard I have fallen out of my chair and have come dangerously close to wetting my pants. Seriously, the kind of laughing that makes you cry and make all sorts of unattractive gasps and snorts. These girls are funny and they make it easy to crack jokes. Probably 'cause we've known each other so long, there's lots to laugh about.

So what about you? Why are your besties the best?

My best friends are the best because we can joke around and laugh and have a good time. Most of my friends don't care what one another is like. They laugh and get along with them even if they are a totally different kind of person. That's why my friends are the best!

My best friends is like the sister I never had. She's sweet, cool, funny, popular, and a really nice social butterfly! She is always there for me, no matter what, and I can always count on her. So what if she's 2 years older than me. She's awesome!

I think the best thing about your best friend is she or he is your shoulder to cry on

Can I just add that I think YOU GUYS are the best! Every day, on this blog, girls give each other caring, honest advice. If you don't mind me saying, I think The Pink Locker Society brings out the best in all of us.

Um, my best friend isn't the best. She is more than that!!! When I'm upset, She is always there for me, and we hardly fall out with each other. She says that when she goes on holiday, she is going to give me 3 gifts! She rox! We are BFFLAD's! (Best friends fro life and death!) but there is a girl trying to break us up, but that will NEVER happen!!!

i like to add that my friends are AWESOME, but i have to say that, that isn't the point in these blogs, their to give advice to others, so my advice is that i have read most of the blogs and they sa she, my bestie, my friend, my best friend. They all mean one syllable, but that doesn't mean you can only have one, but its kinda that i have been left out of alot of things my life, and that is why i take this matter VERY SERIOUSLY!!! If you see a girl over there by herself go say hi, that will prob. be the highlight of there day and even boys i have a lot of boys that are my friends, so dont think that if he becomes my friend i have to like him like him cause you don't!!!!! Thank you for reading my blog and i hope you got something out of it. And can't forget to say hi to my friends out there!! love ya'll all D.W.

My best friends are all VERY unique. One always brags about herself but since she is always for herself, it is always nice when she says you were great or compliments you. I am not saying she is always like that though. She may very well be my best friend. She really is always there and will always lend an ear when I need it the most. One of my other friends is a bit off. She is always trying to act stupid and always puts smiles on the faces of others. I generally lend the helping hand, and I give the advice. But now, it is up to you. I usually have to be the grown-up one, but that is who I am. My friends are most likely not the same as you. Everyone is special. It really is not about what makes them the best, because being the best is not important. Having a friend to just be there is what really counts. I hope you are as lucky as me to have good friends. :)

My best friend is, in my opinion, the most fantastic girl in the world. She's really smart - not the schoolwork smart (or maybe she is, but as I am too, it doesn't matter), but the facts-of-life smart. She's a really mature girl, always analyzing a situation before reacting. She also has a lot of imagination. I love to look at her drawing, or writing stories. She really has a way with words - she can do almost anything if you just provide her a pen! She's funny and really sweet, and she loves me so very much that I sometimes get all tears-eyed.

We've been the best friends ever in school, but we had a huge break up in middle school when she moved for Paris (the French capital - delicious food, expensive clothes, and and so much more new people to meet). Now, we managed to make up quite recently, and we love each other more than ever. I'm never happier than when I'm chatting with her.

A best friend is like the pink pencil in a pencil box. You don't necessarily have to have one - but when you can't put pink in your cute drawing, it's really hard not to cry!
A best friend is all the kinds of love reunited in the same person. She's a sister and a girlfriend at the same time - like family, but even sweeter in the heart. Because even though we don't choose our family, a best friend is this special, predestined girl you only meet once in your live and never let go.

I've got to say my BFFs are amazing I love the way whenever I feel sad they're always there for me.Epically when I have trouble with my parents or my sisters.They always seem to make me laugh, or when I have to go somewhere I don't want to be they come along to support me.We always have each other's back no matter what.So I guess that is what makes my best friends the BEST.
