A Collection of Best Friends
By Beth Beutler
  

1     "Can you have more than one best friend?" I asked Stephanie.
 
2     Stephanie pursed her lips. "I don't know. If you have more than one, how can anyone be ‘best'?"
 
3     I thought about that. If I went purely by logic, Stephanie was right. However, I don't really like the idea of one "best" friend. You see, I have lots of friends, and they fit different needs.
 
4     Stephanie is my best school friend. We have been friends for more than five years, having met in kindergarten. She and I have been in the same school and see each other nearly every day.
 
5     Rachel is my best sports friend. Rachel and I have played soccer, basketball, and softball for many years. We are sometimes on opposing teams, but that hasn't affected our friendship. When we aren't playing, we are often practicing.
