more than my
best friend, she is my sister. We met in August 1996 when I
working at the retail store Mervyn's in Miami, Florida.
At first I thought
she was kind of rude (long story behind that), but some how we managed
become friends. I think one of the main reasons we got to know
is because of our curiosity in one another. People would often
and ask us if we were sisters or related. I must say, I found
funny. You see, Charnesse is from Jamaica,
and I am from Sri
that are on opposite sides of the world! So, for us to be
would be impossible. Nowadays, when people ask us if we are
say "yes." Sometimes we say we are cousins, sometimes we say we
are sisters. What do you think...do we look related?
Here we are just chillin' at the Tikki Bar in Islamorada, Florida.
The day was perfect...sunny, warm, and tons of fun.
lived in her apartment for years, she had finally finished decorating
to her satisfactions and she wanted to celebrate. So she had a
housewarming party. Unfortunately, I couldn't stay for too
had made prior plans to visit my sister in Gainesville, and had to leave
That's not to say I didn't have fun. And, from what I heard, the
was a real success.
Will had a BBQ to celebrate the fact that he was heading off to
the University of Florida
and, to have one last get-together with all his buddies in Miami.
Charnesse loves surprises.
She managed to sneak away while Will wasn't looking, run to the
come back with an ice cream cake for Will that read "Will miss
you!" Isn't that cute?
I really love this picture of Will and Charnesse.
A real friend is one who
walks in when the rest of the world walks out.
