Delaware for Regionals last year, sporadically going bowling (and proving how bad I am at it) was the best part - not the show or the organized dinners or awards ceremony.
Our best moments are the ones where we just jump in a car and see where we wind up. Sometimes it's five minutes down the road, other times it's in another state. Not every single one goes down in a history book, but when you set out purposefully to make those memories they never really do.
I have great friends and we have great moments and one of the times I realized it most was going away to college. My roommate and I were gettign to know each other, and she was showing pictures of her friends all smiling at prom, graduation, and posing gracefully for the camera. She looked at me because it was my turn. With all seriousness I was able to look at her dead in the eyes and without missing a beat say "well, here's my best friend in a freezer."
