Like the Commercials

They give me hugs and we laugh with glee
My childhood forever friends
The ones I have had for over fifty years.
One for sixty-two years actually, since kindergarten.
We make an arrangement for a playdate
And we run toward each other like the TV commercials.
We are linked by memories and experiences 
Too silly to explain to others
Remembered immediately upon sight of each other
Childhood friends, the ones you can laugh with
And cry with, but laugh with a full open mouth
Spittle is funny too!

It is so much fun to see them again. We have all gained weight, and we are grandma-look-alikes and still when we meet we are in third grade or kindergarten again.
