- Kid 1 - yeah, so my best friend, he's like the best. Does everything I do.
- Kid 2 - I thought he was your second best friend last week (I was amazed at the fluidity of friendship status here).
- Kid 1 - he was... But now he's my best friend. We played basketball yesterday, and I beat him (amazing).
- Kid 2 - oh... (back to donut)
So the value of a fluid-second-best-friend is perhaps whipping boy status, which I could see...
