The Framily

  • Copy by: Tiffany Chow

For the first time in my life I can truly say I have a framily. Y’know, a “friend family”.

I’m a recent Chicago resident with no family around me for 2,000 miles. When one of my new friends had an unexpected five-day hospital stay it made me realize the importance of having people around me who I can count on in any situation. Normally, this would just be my genetic family but now if I get sick my mom won’t be able to fly to my bedside. Knowing my framily will bring me chicken soup and an entire DVD series of some awful reality show is such a sweet feeling. Heck, it might even be better!

Do you have a framily? Has your framily ever come to your rescue or helped you in a time of need?
