My dearest friend in the whole world is getting married (married!!!) tomorrow, and as maid of honor I am expected to stand in front of nearly 200 guests and deliver a succinct, insightful speech about our decade-old friendship and not be reduced to a tear-soaked, blubbering mess.

At the end of the day, true, lasting friendship can be summed up in two syllables:

Orrr, you can totally just do this:
