There are people I consider my friend because of blogging. It is what brought us together, but it isn’t what tears us apart. We are not friends because we agree on everything. We are friends partially because we see in each other the passion that makes us blog and defend our opinions. Mostly though, we are friends because they are just wonderful people. Sometimes, we disagree and toss words back and forth on various blogs and social networking sites. In person, we are just friends. I don’t think our friendship is unusual. Then again, the man I love with all of my heart and I don’t see eye to eye on everything and we’re okay with that. He lets me use the words “hare-brained scheme” and “paranoid conspiracy theory” without getting offended. I let him be ridiculous. Actually, I count on him to know when I need a hug and when I need a swift kick in the rear. That’s a pretty big responsibility. Maybe he’s not as crazy as I claim he is. Either way, we are very lucky to have friends who tolerate our craziness.
