Long Distance Friendships As Told By The Sandlot Kids

Long distance anything is tough, but long distance friendships? Now that's just Hell on Earth. I mean think about it. How do we properly survive and thrive when our one true soulmate and other half is miles and hours away? Tears are shed and hearts feel as though they're being ripped to shreds, but as soon as you're reunited, it's like the war is over, and never even started. It's like the best day of your life, every single time it happens. Sometimes it's hard to express these emotions to others in attempts to get them to understand. What better way to try than with the wise words of the Sandlot kids, with their filter left in the dust at home plate?
