I’ve known my best friend, Cathy, since we were four years old. We met through our moms who became acquaintances at the school our brothers attended. We used to wave to each other at the school as we waited by our mom’s side but didn’t see each other socially.
Incidentally, here is the mud pie recipe, in case anyone is interested:
Mix ½ a cup of mud with a ¼ cup of water until smooth and pour into a toy pie plate. Sprinkle with lots of giggles and oodles of childhood imagination, and place in a pretend oven (a windowsill will do) to bake. The pie will be done when laughter subsides and you’re ready to move onto the next imaginary game.
