Today’s prompt asks which of my friends is the complete opposite of me, and what makes our relationship work.
Naturally, in an attempt to ascertain the only appropriate answer, I attain thirty two shoe boxes, (size doesn’t matter). I cover them with brown packing paper, cut a small square hole into the tops of the boxes, and with a black sharpie, I print the following traits, one on the outside of each box:
painfully shy, obnoxious attention seekers, neglectful, needy, rich snobs, poor slobs, blue collar, stuffed shirts, bulimics, anorexics, tall, short, carnivores, vegans, gay, straight, happily single, unhappily married, bitterly divorced, young brats, old farts, religious freaks, hopeless atheists, smarties, make me look smart, boringly political, satirical, black, white, red, yellow, blue, green.
Now with a #2 pencil, I write my friends names several times on small strips of white paper.
Now I put the names of my friends in all the boxes that are consistent with each friends personality.
Now I put my name, which I have written on several small strips of paper, in the boxes which correspond with my excellent personality traits.
Now, I remove all the boxes with my name in them.
Now I realize that I wasted a lot of time because I don’t have many friends.
So I turn to my imaginary friends. That would be Colin Firth, and Thor Norse God of Thunder…
We are three peas in a pod…
So now what do I do?
