Life Soundtrack: Are You Still Friends with Your Childhood Bestfriend?

When I was kid, I had that bestfriend whom I like to be with all the time. Our birthdays are only two days apart so our mothers would buy as matching clothes like we’re twins. We were neighbors and I would often go to their house to play or to watch MTV with her. We had the same taste in music, we loved the Backstreet Boys, The Moffatts and of course, the Spice Girls!

We used to pretend we’re the Spice Girls. I was Baby Spice while she’s Ginger Spice. But since there were only two of us, we would ask her younger siblings and cousin to be the other members. Two of them were boys! Haha. Because we’re older and they were still gullible, we were able to persuade them. You know, there were rumors before (here in the Philippines, anyway) that Emma Bunton and Mel B. were the only real girls in the group while the others were really guys. That’s what we told the them so they can be Sporty and Posh Spice. Her sister had cute curly hair so we made her Scary Spice. πŸ™‚ Okay, so now we know that all of them are real girls (especially Victoria being married to David Beckham)!

I remember that everytime “Stop” will be played on MTV, we would get all excited and do the dance steps. If we’re not together, I would phone her just to tell her that Spice Girls is on. We believed that Spice World was the best movie ever! Haha. Those were the days….

After a few years, we were not able to hang-out as much because probably, we were studying at different schools. I still considered her my bestfriend though because she would still tell me her secrets and her crushes and I used to do the same.

As we grew up, we were slowly growing apart. I didn’t like listening to the loud music coming from her house. She had her vices and I would sometimes see her drunk. She got pregnant in her teens. We became so different. Sometimes, I wonder if things would have been different if I tried staying with her as friend. Or maybe it’s normal to grow apart with your childhood bestfriend…

I found her on Facebook a few months ago and we’re planning to see each other again one time. I wonder how she really is right now. Things might not be as it was before but remembering those times we pretended to be Spice Girls will always put a smile on my face.

How about you? Are you still friends with your childhood bestfriend?

    I only talk to my childhood best friend at times. We’re not close at all any more, which I regret. When you get older you do tend to grow apart, especially moving to new places and hanging out with new people. I always would pretend we were Spice Girls too lol. It sucks when you’re best friends with someone and have everything in common and then suddenly, not so much.

    I love the idea for a song a day – I might borrow that! As for being friends with my childhood friends – I’m still very close with two of my friends I met in junior kindergarten. So yes! There is certainly something special about people who have known you that long.

    My childhood best friend is still my best friend even though we live 800 miles apart. She and I talk weekly and still laugh at all of the silly things we did as kids.

    We met in 5th grade and pretended to be backup singers for Prince as teenagers. We laugh at how our kids listen to music individually instead of enjoying it together like we did; on record players with albums and 45’s.

    Wonderful post! I, like you, grew apart from my childhood best friend. She never married or had a child, and I did. Our lives took different paths. While we still talk to each other once in awhile via Facebook, we don’t hang out. I miss her friendship dearly because it lasted until our mid-20’s even though our lives were different. I’d love to spend a day with her and talk of all the things we shared over the years. She will always have a part of my heart. πŸ™‚
