Political debates

I almost never discuss politics, and I'm not going to do so here. That being said...

I have this friend. I love her unconditionally. We have the utmost respect for each other and each other's points of view...except in Presidential election years. I won't divulge who votes how.

I just got off the phone with her. We had a lively discussion. I was in the comfort of my living room; she was in the grocery store. At one point, the word stupid came up rather firmly on her end. Then I immediately heard her say to the grocery cashier, "I'm sorry, I didn't mean you. No, no. I'm sorry, I'm on the phone," and I collapsed into laughter. I am hereby submitting my public apology to said friend. I know that my laughing at her blue tooth faux pas was like laughing at someone slipping on ice, but it was priceless! More so because I know she would never intentionally call anyone stupid...except me apparently. :) And I love her even more for it!

  1. I've had similar thoughts rolling around in my head!
    Not politically based, but regarding friendship.
    Having a bosom friend that loves you no matter what, and who you never have to worry about judging you or tiptoeing around.
    I was thinking if, in worst case scenario, my Pop-In friend walked into my messy house and caught me lazing (or something) in bed with my husband, she'd most likely say "Get the hell out of bed!" and I'd laugh and get the hell out of bed.
    I want more of that in my life.
