Once upon a time there was a young 16 year old girl named Clara, who isn't afraid to admit now was pretty boy crazy. One day, before taking the daily bus home from school, she had an encounter with one of these boys which completely frustrated her.
While departing from the bus, she saw a 15 year old girl named Cyndi, who happened to go to the same school. Clara turned to Cyndi and said something like, "I hate men!" Mind you, Clara did not even know Cyndi at this time. Cyndi looked at Clara and laughed.
That single event was the beginning of what would turn out to be a 24-year friendship between two women.
