We’ve met here every summer since we were six and became instant best friends; we marvel in whispers at the same things; laugh at each other’s jokes; share “weird-family” secrets and stories while eating cherry or banana popsicles together.
This year, after nagging our parents to death, we’ve got matching bicycles; and having officially become “women”, we drool over older boys as we wonder what sex is really about.
Today we’ve shed our bright bikini bathing suits and jumped into perfect July-warmed water; shrieking at our brave and scandalous midday nakedness, we vow to be best friends forever…still skinny-dipping when time has aged us like wrinkled prunes.
