I was going to write on female vs male friendships, but I feel that entry is still percolating in my brainz.
No secret most of my friends are girls/females/women/whatever.
I have long since reflected that I do, indeed, keep three males friends. Just a touch of fate that the number is prime.
Thinking just now, if there is anything they have in common: Quiet and introverted.
Mike: Met him when I was ‘Belling. I noticed a lot of coworkers found him off-putting. Not me. I liked his weird. He would quietly parrot a lot of my puns. I sometimes wonder if he’s on the autism scale. Would explain why we are able to share some really meta memes and just… get it.
Gordon: Met him at CCM during gaming club. (board games, card games, etc) One of the sweetest guys you’ll ever meet. When he got married, I playfully threatened his wife - told her to be good to him. Vouched for his character.
Airk: Longtime readers should know him well. Most unemotional person I have ever met. Intentional or not, it’s there. I met him Senior year in high school - he was a Sophomore. He made up part of the Quartet - Me, Cliff, Airk, and Dan.
No idea if he still keeps a sword collection. (No exaggeration.) His digital imprint is even less than mine. Sleuths, don’t even bother trying to find him.
And the fun thing: None of them have met each other. Bet it would be an awesome D&D campaign if we got together. I could constantly put a white bunny in their path and see their reaction. (Monty Python & the Holy Grail <3 )
