There is this popular notion that friends are in plenty but we always reserve a special place in our heart for our best friend. And why not? When we experience the troubling pitfalls in life, they are the ones who come to our rescue (after poking fun at us, of course!) And sometimes, just having that one buddy isn’t enough. Life becomes sweeter when we have a number of BFFs who add their own little special touch of magic to our lives, much like these 6 kinds...
