Duran Duran brought us together.
Well, okay, Duran Duran and countless cans of Aquanet hairspray. Yes, you guessed it. It was the 80s, and for the first time since we both started going to the same high school, Michelle and I were in the same home room.
Oh, we’d met many years before in Grade 7, but we never hit it off. I was painfully shy towards kids not in my class, and she thought I was a snob -- because I didn’t want any of her proffered sandwich. Yeah, that was weird. Which should’ve tipped me off that we were destined to be best friends.
Anyway, it was not the most auspicious start to what would be one of my closest and most treasured friendships.
