True Friends Know All Your Dirty Laundry

| DE, USA | Friendly | September 24, 2015

(I’m alone in my hotel room while on vacation in another state. Because it’s getting late, everything is closed and I’m rather bored. I decide to go to the hotel laundry room to do some laundry and bump into another young woman about my age. She picks up one of my shirts that I’ve dropped on the floor and starts to hand it to me when she sees what’s on it.)

Woman: “Wait, is this yours? You listen to [Metal Band]?”

Me: “Yeah, they’re my favorite band.”

Woman: “Holy crap, mine too!”

(We talk for a bit about music while doing laundry before I return to my room. I’m still bored, so I decide to start playing a video game when I hear a knock at my door.)

Woman: “Sorry if I’m intruding, but I just realized that I’m right next to you and can hear your TV through my wall. Are you playing [Game]?”

Me: “I sure am!”

Woman: “Awesome! I love that game! Can I come play with you? I don’t have anything else to do tonight.”

(I invited her in and we ended up playing for half the night. While playing we discovered that by sheer coincidence we happened to come from the same state in cities that were about thirty minutes away from each other and that we have several other similar interests. And that is the story of how I met my best friend.)
