The Daily Prompt: Litmus, Litmus on the Wall

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?

“The Question

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
