Happy birthday Marie!

As each others' prom dates in 2004

Today is Marie's 27th birthday. Having been friends for about 14 years now, and OMGBFFs for 10, we don't give each other birthday presents these days. Instead I figured I will write this post as a gift. Giving Marie the gift of love. I'm such a good friend!

27 reasons I love Marie
1. She has the darkest sense of humour.
2. She is practially unshockable.
3. She always stayed by my side, even when I was difficult to be around.

5. She has my back one hundred and fifty percent.

8. I can tell her absolutely everything.
9. She once made up a song about my dermatillomania to make it seem "normal".

Most of all, number 27, I love her because I have to. She could destroy me with her knowledge of me. If anybody ever found the playscript we wrote aged 17, we'd both be locked up!
