FC: life is good
2: My favorite memory of Eric would have to be back in middle school when we would have those Madden & poker nights with Sean and Kyle. Those were definately some really fun times.
3: I enjoyed making master pieces in Food For Life with Eric and I liked starting every day off seeing the 867-LMZ pulling into my driveway.
4: The more occuring memories that we have shared are the American Idol bettings. We made our bets May 25th for the 7th time (I won). There was this one time when Eric actually won. I believe this was in 5th grade but I can't be sure because he doesn't win often. During a kickball game we kept raising the stakes higher and higher. It got up to $15, sadly I lost and I had to pay Eric his dues. The hard part was we needed to keep our betting as a secret because our mothers did not approve. I didn't have $15 to give Eric so I went through my piggy bank to pay him in quarters, dimes and nickels. I might have used some Monopoly money too. It's funny to look at how this tradition started.
5: My favorite memory is going to Senior Ball with Eric and also doing the Guy/Girl dance at the Pep Assembly.
6: My favorite memory would be playing football in the backyard with Bryan and Eric. We always wore those youth Packer uniforms with plastic pads and helmets and the Packers would always beat the Bears. And when the 8 of us went to Disney....I guess I'd say the whole trip was awesome. A vivid memory is when Bryan, Eric and I were playing monkey in the middle and we broke your wreath and Nancy was NOT happy with us.
7: The thing I would look forward to most would be when we went on the field down the street dressed in our Packer uniforms and played football. I also think it's awesome that the two of us have been good friends literally our entire lives and that we have a chance to keep that going with the two of us going to Madison.
8: I think my favorite memories are the teacups at Disney World, playing "Would you rather" and having every class together (except one) in eighth grade. And it was adorable when Eric's lens would fall out of his glasses and he didn't notice!!!
9: My favorite thing about Eric is that he likes my Dad more than me.
10: My favorite memories are simply every single time we went up north for something!
11: My favorite memory with Eric is when we were all at Alex's birthday party at the hotel downtown. We had been spending the time swimming and playing catch with a football. Eric decided he was going to go back to the room and as he was going back to the table to grab his towel and stuff, we decided it would be funny to see if we could hit him with the ball from the hot tub. The hot tub was on the other side of the pool room, so when I decided to throw it I didn't expect to hit him, but when I threw the ball it hit him in the head as he was drying off his hair. He was not happy.
12: My favorite memory is in the 1st grade when we had matching glasses and a little crush on each other. It was cool Eric asked me to Prom and it was the most fun dance. Eric danced with me the whole time, unlike some of the other guys and he even danced to "Barbie Girl". I had a lot of fun!
13: I'll say my favorite thing would be going to school together for 14 years since preschool. Always knowing each other and doing many different things together and in groups!
14: I think Eric has the best sense of humor ever. Whenever we hang out we can guarantee a few laughs because of him.
15: My favorite story is when we had just gotten back to West after going out to lunch & Eric, Brandon & myself were sitting in the car listening to music. A song came on & Eric had commented on how it was a little bit ghetto. As the song began to go on, Eric began to rap along with the song & during the first verse blurted out "all day" while making a motion with his hand that was mimicking a dj. Brandon & I began to crack up & we laughed about it for the rest of the day. So now whenever a rap song comes on the radio I repeat the phrase "All Day!". I could go on & on with a million other great stories, but the bottom of the line is, Eric is one of the best friends that I've ever had & I'm very glad that I was able to become such good friends with such a good guy. He's always completely honest, & is just a genuinely good kid. He is one of those friends that you have during high school that you hope you continue to be friends for the rest of your life. I consider myself to be incredibly lucky to have him as not only a friend, but a best friend.
16: My favorite memory was going on the Kraken in Seaworld when we went to Florida. Eric was freaked out his first time and I didn't go on. Then he convinced me to go on when he was going his second time. He was pumped up but I was terrified.
17: Sean's favorite memory is hiding in the garbage cans on Halloween and scaring the little kids.
18: My favorite memory with Eric was going with him and his Dad to play baseball. It meant a lot to me just because I never had anyone that would just go to the ball field and play baseball with me. I really enjoyed that.
19: I think my favorite memory would be when Eric and Sean came over to my house and I was dog sitting and I also had my dog. When Eric and Sean decided to leave, the dogs got out and I was upset trying to get them back into the house. Sean and Eric helped me get them back in but after that Eric made fun of me for it Ha ha!
20: My favorite story about Eric has to be when I hit that walk off single against Manty and I look back and there is Eric running toward me and you can just see in his eyes that he thinks that the rest of the team is following him. Then when he gets to me he turns only to realize that the team isn't behind him and that he looks like a complete weirdo. He stops, says "good job Bub" and walks away. that to me sums up Eric and his ability to make a great moment even more special.
21: Many great memories about Eric go far back to when we were in elementary school. We had many great times at recess playing kickball! I also remember going to Eric's a long time ago with Jenna because we wanted to hang out with Jaiden and we rode around the backyard on all the small tractors and tricycles. Eric is a great guy and I hope we keep in touch because he is very funny and an awesome friend.
22: I will never forget in Band in 7th or 8th grade when, Eric, Sean and myself were doing a trumpet trio for Solo & Ensemble. When we were supposed to be practicing, Eric & Sean would leave our practice room and go into Brandon's & have what they called a "Pow Wow". It was the strangest, funniest thing ever! Also I will never forget when Eric, Sydney and myself always used to 3 way call and talk on the phone about stupid stuff.
23: and now more adventures and more fiends......life is good
