oh, the first comment rarely wins but technically speaking, it should have statistically the same chance as every other number, right?

My BFF's name is Tanya. She's coming to visit over Christmas and we're very excited. I haven't seen her since March of last year.

Believe it or not, my Best Friend is my ex-husband Mike. We had always made a promise to each other that if we ever divorced that we would remain best friends. When he got remarried I was a witness, so what does that tell you.
Thanks for the chance to win this Great Giveaway.

Good stuff! Deborah is my best friend. She can sometimes be so sarcastic, I can't tell whether or not she's joking.
