my own two cents

This week I am going to cut to the chase. I took a gamble on the Money Penny and I feel I came out even. My actual rating would be a 6 though at first taste it received a 7. Amy, I'm sorry you didn't get a clear rating before you ordered :)

And now I'll share on my "you have got to be kidding me" moment. In the middle of my martini, which I was still trying to decide my feelings on, some friends walked in the door. Or maybe I would say acquaintances. (this was the moment) I just had to laugh because of the inevitable encounter approaching and I must say I'm slightly shocked at the other parties' reaction. I got acknowledged in a "oh, I think I knew you once...(walk away dramatically)" way. And then the other person says nothing. Now in a way I'm not complaining because it could have been drawn out but also, martinis don't like drama and neither do I. So it got me thinking about friends vs. acquaintances. I think the latter, for some reason, has a bad stigma with it. Like, if you're only an acquaintance that's a bad thing. Really? I think it's better than an enemy, or better yet a frienemy. It might be a difficult situation if somehow the friendship has moved to just acquaintances but it's most likely for the better. I mean come on, can anyone really stay friends with everyone they meet? It's impossible! Most of you can't even remember the name of your best friend from 4th grade. Ok, that's the end of my rant. Thanks for listening and as always, your thoughts are welcomed.

  1. "frienemy"...clearly I need to spend a little more time on urban dictionary...awesome! Totally agree...somewhere along the line being an acquaintance got associated with a downgrade from being a friend when clearly it has both a place and meaning to completely stand on its own.
