We all have a group of friends / acquaintances that surround us.
With the rise of Facebook / Linkedin / Twitter people can say they have 1000’s of friends, but if you’re honest you haven’t really, you’ve got 100’s of people you went to school with / bumped into that one time in a meeting and haven’t actually spoken to in real life let alone on social media in years, but you like to keep an eye on what they’re doing, more stalking victims than friends. 🙂
Real friends are the sort that you can go months without seeing but a 2 hour phone call to them and your all caught up on things and set the world to rights.
They’re the ones that when your car is broken down they’re on the phone offering assistance or to even loan you a car / lifts until you get sorted.
The ones that no matter what’s going on in their life at the moment see you in need and come to the rescue.
They’re probably the God Parents to your kids / Best Man / Ushers / Bridesmaids.
Dictionary.com goes so far to define the word friend in some of the following ways;
- A person attached to another by feelings of affection or personal
- A person who gives assistance; patron;
- A person who is on good terms with another; a person who is not
- A person associated with another as a contact on a social-media
Your probably sat there now thinking about those people who are in this “top” list, when did you last see them / catch up … go on give them a ring / fire that message on Facebook, have that catch up etc.
Friends are a bit like Arseholes ….. We all have them even if we rarely see them, some of them even smell a bit funny but we all need them and would be screwed without them. 🙂
Have a good weekend, see you all next week!!
