There's something about spending time with people that gives you more things to laugh about. It's different from connecting via text or email or chat. Because those funny one-liners rarely come from email messages. They do, however, emerge from phone calls, skype conversations, or, best of all, talking in person.
(Don't get me wrong, I see the value of today's social media (Hello, multimedia major here!). But the personal connection from talking goes way beyond any other type of communication.)
These types of one-liners are beautiful. And fun. And they tie you closer to the person or people with whom you have them. Cases in point:
"Pinterest!"- I can't hear it (from certain people) without laughing, unfortunately.
"I heard he was cute""Brilliant!""Where's the van?""Group Dynamics!!"
These phrases draw my friends and I together. Each time we use one of them, we are reminded of an experience that we had. That's such a blessing, you guys. When you re-hash a fun time or a difficult week, you are re-learning about the people with whom you experienced this, you are re-learning about yourself. It's so beautiful, important, and crucial to your growth with your friends.
And that's how friendship turns into family.
