How Did You Meet Your Best Friend?

On Fridays, we ask a bunch of unrelated questions. Your answers help get us through the afternoon. Answer one, answer all, or ask your own question. On to this week's topics...

1. Think of your best friend in the whole world. How did you two meet? Grew up next door to each other? College hallmates? Gave him or her the Heimlich at the Pizza Hut lunch buffet?

2. What was the biggest decision you made in the last ten years? Was it the right one?

3. Early in my freshman year of college, I started getting strange calls very late at night. "Do you know what your phone number is?" the presumably drunken caller would ask. I did. 613-3425. What of it?

The calls continued every few days, like an annoying teaser campaign for a movie I'd never consider watching. But at 3am one morning came the grand reveal: "Your number is 613-DICK!"

The phone numbers in these dorms don't change, so the caller knew what room was associated with this riotous number. One night I heard someone writing on my whiteboard, so my roommate and I opened the door. A guy I'd never seen had written "Your Number Is," but our mere presence startled him. (Our mere presence should not have startled anybody.) Rather than finish his message, the prankster returned the Dry Erase marker to its snug little holder and took off running. The calls stopped.

Did you ever have a phone number that spelled something? (Or did you ever harass someone who did?)

4. Your turn! Got a question for the group? Ask it here. Have a great weekend!
