Today, I thought that those MLIA posts about the death of an average friend were depressing and admittedly, lame. Then the state trooper came to the door of my apartment to tell me my best friend, Lindsay, had died on impact in a horrific car accident. Now I want to proclaim to the average world that Lindsay was the most average person I have ever met. She made every day a joy, from quoting Harry Potter to playing with Legos to dancing in the kitchen. She changed my life. With or without her, I will never be the same. Lindsay's LIA--and because of that, MLIA.
