Friendchips: for anyone who doesn’t know, friendchips are chips that are made from your friends!!!* And while some people may declare that they are rather tasty, I have to say that I am quite opposed. Particularly since they so often come from me… Anyway, my biased opinion would therefore be that any friendchips are too many. I’m sure that most people would at least agree, though, that the point of “too much” would come when there was no longer enough of said friend either to be friends with or to make more chips from.
“Even I’m eatable! But that is called “cannibalism,” my dear children, and is in fact frowned upon in most societies.” ~Johnny Depp as Willy Wonka, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
*Disclaimer: No one actually makes chips from their friends (that I know of)! It’s just a joke!
Awesome: while awesome is, by definition, pretty awesome, I would think that too much awesome would detract from the overall awesome and make it significantly less awesome (do you think there’s too much awesome in this sentence?). I am of the opinion that part of what makes awesome is its novelty. Take ROMP, for example. As a yearly get-together, it’s a fun, exciting, awesome event to look forward to. If it happened every day, though, it would soon come to be taken for granted, and we may even get tired of doing the same thing so often, even viewing it as mundane or bothersome. Not to mention that ROMP, like so many other awesome things, takes a lot of work to put together. This can be overlooked and even considered part of the awesome for a rare event, but by increasing the frequency of the awesome, the work it requires becomes proportionally less worthwhile.
In short, while I cannot deny the awesomeness that is concentrated awesome, when it is spread out it loses its potency and, thus, the awesome that makes it awesome in the first place.
So that’s it for this week! Be sure to leave Question Tuesday suggestions for me! Please?
P.S.- I just found Host Club sitting on my stairs!!! Yayyyyy!!!!! Thanks Heather/Alexis/Amber/Sanaa!
Addition: It seems like I failed to address a question posed by Anna Beth! Sorry! It’s not strictly Question Tuesday material, but I enjoyed answering it, and I’m always happy to bequeath a little wisdom to my friends :). So, the question was regarding the definition of a date. In general, I would say that a date is a meeting between two people where there is a mutual acknowledgement of feelings on both sides, and thus a recognition by both that they are, in fact, on a date. The exception to this rule deals with the friends of either party. The mutual feelings and acknowledgement are not required for the friends (in fact, its absence is more preferable), who are then allowed to tease unmercifully for as long as they wish :D. How's that, AB?
