The Daily Prompt from The Daily Post: If you had to come up with one question, the answer to which would determine whether or not you could be friends with a person you’ve just met, what would it be? What would the right answer be?
One question that will determine if we will be friends?
Such an operating system seems destined to produce a premature outcome
For friendship is a journey of discovery
Initial impressions may not be representative of the person’s character
A character that, with exploration over time, I may come to value dearly
Or discover one that matches the scariness of a Dean Koontz novel
The first question opens the door
Subsequent questions guided by open hearted curiosity and good listening skills
Bring me further into the house and rooms
What I find in the process is what determines whether a stranger will become an acquaintance
An acquaintance become a friend
I have no litmus question
