It is a special day here at BWHO – it is Shannon’s birthdaaaaay!!!!
Shannon and I met just over 5 years ago. I sat down beside her at the introduction day of Library School, and we started talking and that was it. Instant friends. (She was wearing a cherry coloured coat, BTW). We started hanging out almost immediately and bonded over boy trouble.
We had a lot of fun that year – she introduced me to pizza hut buffets, partying, America’s Next Top Model and H&M. I can truly say that my life would be incomplete without any of these things, and especially without her.
We haven’t actually seen each other in about 4 years, but our constant communication through phone calls, texts and MSN has sustained us so far. We are two sides of the same coin, I think. We love many of the same things, and we often share the same thoughts – text each other the same thing at the same time, tweet the same thing, and we have even bought the same coat, without knowing that the other had bought it.
So, HAPPY BIRTHDAY to one of the funniest, smartest and most beautiful people I know!
