A Colorful Friendship

| Friendly | January 3, 2016

(I had just finished boot camp, and am at my first training command. Home is a thousand miles away and only one person I know from boot is going to the same school as me. Needless to say, it is pretty lonely. I am sitting alone in the classroom when someone plops down at my table.)

Stranger: “This seat taken?”

Me: “No.”

Stranger: “You mind?”

Me: *shrug*

Stranger: “Hey, your name is White.”

Me: “What?”

Stranger: “Your last name is White. My last name is Green. We should be friends.”

Me: “Because our names are both colors?”

Stranger: “I’ve heard dumber reasons.”

(Nine years later, and she’s still one of my closest friends.)
