(no not the TV show...)

Today a friend of mine asked me if I was friends with Steve and Leesha. When I said I was, he replied "O: LUCKY!" I just kinda shrugged. I mean, I like Steve and Leesha, and I love their show. But we never play together. So that got me thinking...
What is a friend?

The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines a friend thus:
Main Entry:  friend
Pronunciation: \ˈfrend\
Function: noun
Etymology: Middle English frend, from Old English frēond; akin to Old High German friunt friend, Old English frēon to love, frēo free
Date: before 12th century
1 a : one attached to another by affection or esteem b : acquaintance
2 a : one that is not hostile
3: a favored companion
— be friends with : to have a friendship or friendly relationship with

Hmmm, well that really doesn't apply to this day and age. "Friend" is let me add you on facebook so I have a collection of people that I'm mildly interested in at my finger tips.
Of course that's not always true, I know some real gems on wizard101. People who I would be honored to know in real life.
I know, I know, you're all saying "So where are you going with this Heather?"

 I guess my point is, that adding people as "friends" doesn't really matter. You have to BE a friend. Can we all try to BE more and add less? I think we would all be happier that way.
I am not going to "Add" any more people. Lists don't matter to me, what I'm really interested in is people and people I care about, and who care about me.

My two cents.


  1. That's really true Heather. I hope that someday you can consider me one of those friends. :)

  2. @Alyssa & Victoria: Oh good. I'm glad someone understood! :D

    @Blaze: We'll see... XD I'm messin' with ya. Of course. Just because I'm not adding new people doesn't mean that I'm going to stop being friends with anyone new. That's crazy! Hehe.
