Of Bullies and Besties

The summer before the third grade, my family moved to a new community across town. This meant a new school and new friends. The only two friends I remember from the new neighborhood were Jeannie and Heather. I don't remember exactly how Nicki and I made friends with Jeannie, but I do remember it was a tenuous alliance at best, the first iteration of many love/hate relationships I would experience in life that would later include some boys and most refined carbs.
