comment Is “best” still a superlative in “best friend”, as in can you have more than one “best friend”?
@ChrisH: Okay, that's a better example and addresses Anemone's comment too. I find the phrase "other best friend" to be surprising.

So, you wouldn't be surprised if someone said "My best friend was sick in bed, so me and my best friend went to visit her."?

@HotLicks: I'm approaching 50, but when I was a teenager I only have one best friend, one second-best friend, etc. Of course, as a group they were my "best friends", but I would never say "My best friend betrayed me" to refer to any of them equally.
