We could be friends, you know. You could send me a quick message, something like “Hi, how are you?” or maybe “Hats are pretty cool, just thought you should know”. You could write me a lengthy prose about your day, or just send an encouraging note telling me that my knitting skills are not nearly as terrible as I think they are (you’d be lying, but I would appreciate it just the same). Or, you know, you could say nothing. We could be strangers passing in the night, never to meet again.
Friends are pretty cool, though.
