Yay for T!!!
I have two friends like that--M and Z. SINCE KINDERGARTEN!!! But it's now, as adults, that I find they have that effect on me--helping me ease back into my true self, just by sitting around and doing not much of anything. Reflecting back to me who I really am in the easiest of ways. And Z, like T, is a guy. So there is a brotherly aspect now that I truly treasure.
