The good ol’ School days. You know what made them extra special? Our best friend.
Remember how we used to make elaborate plans with our best friend for the day ahead — whether s/he was coming to school, for picnics, group presentations, home study sessions (that eventually turned out to be a party). And… hiding the homework from the teacher if one of us hadn’t done the work, and standing outside the class with our hands up for punishment… You both were inseparable.
