Thor and I were talking about friends, and I said, “I know this is a silly question, but I know my answer, and I’m just interested in yours. How do you know when you’ve made a friend? What does ‘friend’ look like?”

He thought a moment and said, “I think you know you’re friends when you start spending time together on purpose, and start sharing things because you want to.”

I thought that was an excellent definition, and much better than my own.

According to Thor, you don’t need to have a lot in common, save for the agreement that the company is good, and the interest is mutual.

This Thanksgiving weekend, I wish you good company, with mutual levels of interest, and plenty of good food.
