OK folks, some of my friends don't understand my answer to this question in the Saturday Six:
6. If you were another person, do you think you would be friends with the person you know as yourself?
My answer was no. Here's why: It says, "If you were another person". See, if I were another "me", I'd get along just fine with me. But I've not met many people who understand me enough to get through the armor and really be able to put up with me. Cliff does well at it, thank the good Lord. I don't fit in with most crowds. I don't like the things women are supposed to like... shoes, clothes, makeup. I have never fit into anybody's mold.
As for the word "friend". Some people call every acquaintance "friend". I do not. My real friends in this life have been few and far between, although there are many acquaintances I like. (Joanna, Lona, Sue... you are friends.)
Probably this is as clear as mud to most of you. But I think my kids and my husband (and possibly a friend or two) will understand what I am saying.
