No one could ever know me
No one could ever see me
Seems you’re the only one who knows what it’s like to be me
Someone to face the day with, make it through all the rest with
Someone I’ll always laugh with
Even at my worst, I’m best with you, yeah!
It’s like you’re always stuck in second gear
When it hasn’t been your day, your week, your month, or even your year
I’ll be there for you
This is the lyrics to the theme song of the famous comedy show Friends
We all have those types of friends whom we talk about this thing but can not mention the other, friends in this case I’m seeing it in my mind as a file folder.Mine, I have known them for so long! most before I even knew how to write the word: onomatopoeia.
In this piece I will talk about 5 friends, yes there many other categories out there but these are the ones I can write home about.
- The Crazy Friend:
This one you greet them by insults, it is the one friends the n word, the f word the r word or whatever offensive, made-up, funny, controversial, unknown word is used as a greeting , she /he is that one you can say anything stupid with, even compose a song about the weather: ” leo jua, imewaka. imewaka imewaka, tutachomeka tutachomeka tukue makaa” with this friends everything is fun and funny. They cheer you up.
2. The academic friend
Well they know themselves! its all business with them when it comes to schooling, if you want to be serious you go to them, want to know the current affairs its them( happens mine doesn’t watch news but its close enough), Its the person if you were in a game show you would call, the type to use the third Law of Newton to explain to you how to end a relationship.They inspire you, and make you feel like I got this, this too shall pass. oh, and ” I rather die….”( fill in the blanks)
3. The psychologist
well, well, there is that one person who is always giving you advice, they are sane ( well lets not kid ourselves sometimes it goes haywire) but they are the type you tell your stuff to convince yourself to do the right thing. They listen to you and remind you of yesterday, what and how the situation was and compare it to today. They are the listening ear, the cushion.
4. The secret twin
she senses when you are down, when things are going wrong even after days and days without meeting or talking. Don’t know how they do it, but they text at those odd times when you have been crying. They are the ones to tell you, “that was a true laughter, come from the heart” they have one of those questions you wonder how in the world?!!!!!!????
5. The new friend
The one you are trying to know, have things in common, share stuff with, go out with. There are the ones who know things about you but not too much, they share your interests, you talk often or not. They are the ones in the filter to see where they rank, the seasonal, friends for a reason, friends with benefits, cliques, clichés, classmates, neighbours, workmates, etc.
All these five sometimes come in different packages. I think when I’m talking to my friends everyone knows what role to play( sometimes one can play the role of the other in their absence, you all think you can guess what they would say)but they are all very important to and sometimes their role switches depending on the situation and circumstances.
