After some long and thoughtful thinking I’ve come to the conclusion and am leaning towards the thought that having enemies as friends is the way to bounce. You don’t have to worry about hurting feelings. You don’t have to remember names…I mean it is a lot easier to remember an enemy than it is a friend. I mean Joe, Jimc, HMike, Moment, (I could go on all day) jump right to mind when I’m thinking about friends. You don’t have to feel sorry when you aren’t. You don’t have to send cards or gifts. You don’t have to call when you say you will. You don’t have to pretend to like what they like. You don’t have to worry they might disagree with you. You don’t have to…

You get the idea. Enemies are in. Friends out. Enemies can’t hurt your feelings. Enemies don’t care what you think. With enemies you pretty much know what to expect. It’s easy to be an enemy, and I’m all about easy. I’m sure at least 10% of you that view this post must have some thoughts on the subject. Let’s hear it.

I just looked it up in the dictionary, and you’re right, that story was ironic. I thought it meant it was completely made from iron

Maybe you have your definitions backward. Friends don’t care if you disagree with them or think they have bad taste or forget their names, although of course they have to get something from the relationship.

Your theory fails in one respect, that being the definition of a “friend”. A “real” friend knows me and my flaws and therefore doesn’t take offense easily if my Fox Paw (or faux pas…never understood french) fits within my profile. The “sorta” friends are really only acquaintences. My guess is that most people only have 1-3 of the former.

Teejk, would you die for these 1-3 “real” friends?

A friend is someone who would bail you out of jail.

A REAL FRIEND would have been sitting next to you in the cell saying “DAMN! I cant believe we almost got away with that!”
