reunion and friendship

friendship is a funny thing. the ones you made during your younger days usually last the longest. forget office collegues. they can be the best of buddies when you work togather. they may open their heart out to you, tell their darkest secrets and perversions but the moment they change jobs...woosh..gone. like rats out of an aqueduct, to quote life of brian . but those that you made during your school days are different. perhaps because we were more innocent then. we had higher tolerance for each others' stupidities and cruelties. we didn't understand what hurt means. we didn't take things to heart as much as we do with friends we make during our later years. and with the passing of time memories become all the sweeter as all the hurts we might have harboured would all be healed by father time.

and that's why i hate reunions. they kill old memories. and more likely than not instead of reinforcing friendship it can go wrong and we would be hurt by the slightest unintended slights. so i usually stay away from reunions. and looking at once sexy girl friends which you may or may not have fantasised and masturbated to and now looking like mishappen baloons don't help.

but here's another thing. with facebook , reconnecting with old friends that you have not met for donkey years suddenly become so easy. but this too, i tried to steer away from. occassionally i came across a few familiar names but i never invited any of them into my fb. almost all my facebook friends are virtual friends. it's interesting to to see some of these people making fool of themselves by spouting pseudo philosophies and making inane remarks . but this is no problem, because i have a very high tolenrance for stupidities. what i can't stand is fakery and wogism.

real friendship is almost impossible once you have reached a certain age. if you don't make good friends during you school days, well forget it...may be i'm wrong. i'm always wrong. i actually have some very interesting friends that i made post school days... but to say that they are friends that i'd die for, well, that's asking a bit too much. in fact i don't think i'd die for anything. i'm very selfish. just like all of us. we're all heartless....except those stupid ones who think they must save the world. why?
