For Better or for Worse (6/4/10)

One of my favorite things about childhood was the ample number of friends I had, both on my block and at school. There were dozens of us, and since we were all the same age it never occurred to us not to hang out together. My days were filled with softball games, birthday parties, sleepovers, informal Nintendo-based get-togethers, and other random acts of friendship. Much of this was done in the spirit of avoiding homework, but it was still a blast. Now that I’m an adult, I see my friends less and less, and I find it difficult to make new ones. I still go out on the weekends and exchange messages with people on Facebook, but work, chores, and other responsibilities eat up a lot of my time. I miss the world of free and open friendship, even if childhood was the only thing that made it possible.
