These days, friendship means liking each other's pictures on Instagram and binge-watching the hottest new show on Netflix with plenty of wine on hand. (I'm a fan of the wine part, in particular.) But when we were kids, the story was totally different when it came to things a '90s friendship was made of. We knew what truly made someone your friend: Lifetime access to their entire collection of milky pens and freedom to raid their snack closet every time you were invited over. Otherwise, what's the point in even liking each other? (Besides, your friend's mom totally let her eat Twinkies every week, while your mom only bought them for "special occasions.")
I didn't have a ton of friends growing up, but I did have a few. We stuck together on the playground and talked about all the nasty boys who had cooties, shared our lunches when someone got sick of their Lunchables and the other wasn't in the mood for Gushers, and argued over who had the cutest jelly shoes and slap bracelets. You know, all the important things in life.
