His family moved in just a few houses down from us when I was about ten, and I still remember how excited I felt when I found out there was another boy on the street. I’d been the only boy, you see. The others were all girls. We were good friends from the beginning because we liked the same things: computers and football, mostly. We had quite a few of the same hobbies for a while. I remember making lots of model airplanes one year. Another year we took up fishing. We had all the equipment and everything, and we’d spend ages down by the river. I never go fishing now. His family moved away a couple of years ago. We’re still friends on Facebook, but we don’t really stay in contact besides that.
