I Remember I remember the kid next door with whom I grew up a short and stocky lad named Donald Meaux Did I say stocky A modern day Pillsbury Dough Boy with high top sneakers and knee high-socks is a more accurate description He has been my next door neighbor for more than eighteen years We met as most children do through the friendship of our parents Our fathers shared cold beers in the evening while our mothers gossiped in the kitchen over tea Their two diapered infants played in the playpen together day in and day out In this friendship which was similar to that of a married couple Donald and I had our ups and our downs yet for ten years we spent day after day together We often fought and then we made up once the ice cream man came around the corner in his magical truck But like most good things the friendship wore away with time I remember Donald as a spoiled aggravating four year old Neither of these are characteristics that anyone looks for in a lifelong friendship Yet characteristics like these are not very important to a child of four At four years old people hardly ever make logical decisions After all Donald and I did share a bowl of dog food for dessert every now and then For the first few years our friendship was flawless We spent day after day together On the weekends we took turns sleeping at each others houses I used to love sleeping at Dons house because we were allowed to stay up later there than at my house Another thing I loved about their house was the coveted midnight snack which consisted of either chocolate milk or Fruity Pebbles We kept ourselves awake until midnight ate our snack and then went to sleep We remained good close friends
