dead

Tuesday, July 2, 2013

Mom:  I love this quote… “Good friends are like stars.  You don’t always see them, but you know that they are always there.”

me:  Actually, many of the stars we currently see are already burnt-out and dead, but we just don’t know it yet because their light is still traveling toward us.

Mom:  Fine.  We’ll change it.  ”Good friends are like stars…

me:  …They’re very shiny but a lot of them might be dead.”

Mom:  And once again, you ruin the romance with logic.

me:  Well some might not be dead yet.  Although technically if they’re not already dead they’re most likely currently in flames.

Mom:  *sigh*

me:  How about this?:  ”Most of your friends are dead, but the ones who aren’t dead are on fire.  It’s complicated to explain, but it’s nice to watch from a distance.  Much like friendship.”
