I never quite understood the best buds t-shirt wave.
This is especially the case when the person is alone and there is no best bud anywhere to be found.
We are all social animals, and perhaps, we all wish to have a best bud in our lives–someone to “buddy around with” and who knows and understands us, and unconditionally accepts us.
Best buds seems to almost be able to read each others minds and finish each others sentences…and they laugh hysterically together about these mindless things for which apparently only they get it.
When best buds are together, it’s like they are almost in a bubble of their own world, and everyone else is on the outside, if they even exist to the buds at all.
That’s because bests buds are it–they have history, they share things in common, they think alike, and they work in tandem.
It’s like getting two for the price of one: they are Batman and Robbin, Tonto and The Lone Ranger, Cheech and Chong, Laverne and Shirley, Simon and Garfunkel, and so many other couplings that stick together like peanut butter and jelly.
If you have a best bud then you already know you don’t need to give them a t-shirt to spell it out–the chemistry already says it all. 😉
