My friend was talking to me the other day about how his brother would always tell on him. I thought about it, and not once did my brother ever snitch on me. We would fight, rip each other's hair out, call each other names (the only one that made him mad was butt-butt) and generally just hate one another, but we never snitched. I know he's got real good dirt on me, but even when he's raging so he hard his face turns red, he won't rat me out. I think that's part of what a good friendship is, putting the people you care about above your immediate concerns no matter how mad you are at them.
Anyway, I thought about that and it made me proud. My brother and I still get mad at each other, but we're pretty freaking tight, and I can say the same thing about a lot of my friends. I'm glad to have all of them around.
