We dressed similarly, listened to the same music, hung out with the same people. We even adopted each other’s habits and vernacular. We were sometimes considered a single entity.
Then Mary started dating Malcolm*, and our two-some evolved into a three-some. Malcolm was dreamy. He was 17! He skated, listened to cool music, smoked cigarettes and weed, and was totally hot. He was also very into Mary, which I thought was great. (Who wouldn’t be?) I loved hanging out with Malcolm, and the three of us had some pretty great times together.
