Ladies, gentlemen, get out your champagne flutes, your best robes and your pineapple upside down cakes, for today is Bestie Day. Remember kindergarten? Remember how all those 5-year-olds’ faces would curl up with disdain if you claimed more than one single bestie? Well, the battle they call kindergarten is over, my friends (for most of you), and now you can have a thousand besties. Or two. The lion’s share of you are modern people with robot phones, do what you wish!

This year, I dedicate Bestie Day to Sophia, who has so many wonderful people who call her a best friend because she always makes everyone feel special.
