What does "friend" mean to you?
Someone to hang out with and fight bad guys like Batman and Robin ?
Friends that are good enough to understand when you're angry,
like Bert and Ernie?
Maybe your friends are all sizes and colours,
like this Gingerbread family ?
Not sure MrNifty will be flattered or not...
but after a gazillion years we are a bit like these paired-for-life skunks!
All these items and many more are from the shop of my virtual friend Supersock, and it was chatting about our virtual friendship that prompted this blog post. I realised I knew none of the "normal" stuff about Supersock that you might expect to know of a "real life" friend, yet we chat every day. I don't know Sock's gender, age, ethnicity, profession, marital status - none of those "normal" things - but does it matter? Not one bit! We're never likely to meet in real life, we're on opposite sides of the pond and I don't even have a passport...but we're friends, and it looks like we're going to be sharing an ice cream!
Check out the mad world of Supersock - and I'd be happy to hear your thoughts on friendship.
