    I have this SAT class I go to on the weekends. That is, a class to prepare for the SAT tests. We go to the second floor of a coffee shop and sit at our tables, and we do math problems and grammar lessons from a textbook designed for the SAT.

    There are two major groups of tables, with a Chinese-style privacy divider in the middle of the room. There is a teacher at each table. My group has an ENFP teacher, a heavyset boy who I think is ISFP, an I-type girl of some sort, and her friend who I think is ExFP.

    The ExFP girl is the smiliest one of the group. I can be hyperactive, but...not quite as bright.
    And we were all talking together because we had some free time, and we said stuff about friends, and I was drawing pictures of unicorns on my paper, and the ExFP girl asked me to draw some on her paper. I did.

    Now I don't normally hang out a lot. Like my ENFJ dad when he was a kid, I'm very social when thrown into situations with many other people. Loud and proud. But I don't spend a lot of free time actively socializing.

    And I don't remember how she said it, but she said something like "this girl's my best friend" or something. And at the end of the sentence, she said, looking at me with a smile that seemed suspiciously deliberate, "Other than you."

    I cried internally.

    Joyously.

    A moment of surprising acceptance. It's like a gift.

    I just watched this commercial and have been crying ever since.

    Was this a fight? I was just slightly confused.

    Also, just read this again and to clarify by nothing I meant that if the kid was a boy I wouldn't have felt any differently.
