Cristina and I became friends through our love of floss. Before that, I thought she hated me. I’ll explain.
I might have dated Cristina’s ex boyfriend in high school. Because of that, I, a super ‘mature’ junior, thought Cristina, the super cool senior, hated me. Little did I know Cristina is not only super cool, but super sweet and amazing! About 2 years after this we both hopped on the same bus to head to Young Life’s Crooked Creek Ranch for a ski trip. Somehow the two of us ended up sitting next to each other. I think awkward small talk took place. But I know one thing did take place, a conversation about flossing, and how we both loved it. I whipped out my floss and the “I think she hates me” mindset was gone. We were now friends.
