Temporary Best Friends
Our lives are full of relationships. Ranging from life-long friendships to “the guy I buy cigarettes from at the corner store”, we all have these same types of shared connections. One type of relationship that I feel like the world could use more of is a term that I coined “temporary best friends”. The people you meet during a long, unexpected layover due to weather, or meet over a shared experience so strange or fucked up you instinctively lock eyes with this stranger as if to say “did that just happen?”. These are one of my favorite types of relationships.
