According to Merriam-Webster dictionary, SPECIAL is:
There’s a million reasons why someone is special to us. This friend of mine is special to me for nth motives. He’s intelligent, funny, a good listener, an even better speaker and above all, a sensitive human being. I’m glad we have crossed paths and really hope our sincere friendship will endure forever, although he knows how to piss me off when he means to. 🙂
Happy Birthday, my dearest friend!
