You know they are your F.R.I.E.N.D.S. when..

My mom has always told me that the friends that you make in school are the friends that stay on with you forever. In fact they are the true friends. I did not really think that is how things and friendship works in life. But then after completing my graduation and post graduation and then staying away from everyone called "friend" I realized how right my mom was. Having said that I certainly don't mean that I had a grossly sad life after high school. I certainly found Mahima in engineering college. But this post of mine is dedicated to my school friends who are just there no matter what. When I say that I really mean that. 

Of course, you realize this when you go through some bad phase or your friends go through something sad and you suddenly see that they are your friends in need. Even if you don't need them they will cling on to you because they know you are just not fine. That is true yaari. "True friends", "best friends" are just meaningless words when you can not relate them with the following :

1. You can talk to them about anything which might not make sense to other people but to you. And only you.
My school peeps are all scattered and we are just there on the Whatsapp group. We don't even talk in full sentences at times and whatever I speak reaches the right person anyway.

2. It is so okay to call any of them at any hour of the day.
None of them gets judgmental or irritated. In fact we are just happy that at least the phone rang!

3. Despite their prejudices for you they never get judgmental and love you for what you are.
4. No matter how uncool your guilty pleasures are they will be involved in it with you and promise to keep it a secret between you guys!

5. It never seems like ages have passed since you last met. Things are just like the old times with them. We don't meet on our birthdays but we try to meet whenever possible, that is, when everyone is in the town. I might just drop out of the plan but they never hated me or disowned me for that. And when we meet, I just realize how things can never change. No matter what. 

6. You just know that throwing the most vibrant insult on them is going to be the high point of your life that day. And no one really takes offence. 

7. You sometimes feel that your social media is just for them. They are the first ones to like your posts. Also, they are friends with the important people of your life on Facebook.

8. You are always making plans with them to travel somewhere together which seldom materializes but still you never get disappointed because you know that it will happen soon. In this lifetime.

9. You can talk about anything, like anything with them - family, love, sex, money- with or without alcohol. Just celebrate responsibly. We are so sophisticate that we even talk about the serious issues of our lives over green tea!

10. You know about their romantic histories, with the heroes, villains and guest appearances, by heart.

11. You can act as dumb as you wish to be despite the fact that you might be the smartest person on the face of the mankind.

12. Let us talk about money. You never have to talk about it. You know that the balances will settle down during the course of your lives.

If you could just relate someone to each and every point that are mentioned above, just give them a call, meet and share a hug. Friendship like this is very rare and are to be treasured forever!
