I tend to be, more often than not, a little ridiculous. I make loud and strange noises; I talk with large hand gestures; I dance . . . everywhere.
I also tend to make friends with people who are, more often than not, less than ridiculous. This is not to say that they don't have these tendencies - they do I assure you. Their ridiculousness, however, might stem out of a state of restlessness, fatigue or stress.
I always know I've made a friend when someone can deal with my ridiculousness and find it endearing, rather than irritating.
So this is a thank you to my friends who take my 'nature' and look on it with love.
