Ideal Friends

This is the ideal friendship of Pooh and Piglet:

“We’ll be friends forever won’t we Pooh?” asked Piglet.

“Even longer.”  Pooh answered.

And Pooh’s theory:  “A day without a friend is like a pot without a single drop of honey.”

This is the ideal friendship in my life:

“Colleen we get along so good.  I feel comfortable saying anything with you.  I don’t have to worry like when I’m around all  those intellectual types.”  Says my friend on one of our long hikes.

Me:  “uhm….okay”.

Seven days later I have a come back:  “That’s because you don’t like the intellectuals calling you on your bullshit”.

“Ain’t that the truth.”   Says she.

I can see her point.
