True Friendship

It occurs to me that you’re not really friends with someone until you are mutually comfortable in the knowledge that if either of you interrupts the other and says “Now wait a minute!” (1), you’ll still be able to have a friendly conversation with each other after that point.  If this is not the case, you are acquaintances at best.

A minor enough insight, I’ll grant, but in the age of online “friends,” I think it’s one that bears mentioning now and then.

(1)  Alternatively known in the vernacular as “Calling B.S.”

    That line’s going to come back to haunt you someday, you know. 😉 So yes . . . let’s move on . . . and quickly. 😀
