Good Friends (and Keeping a Sense of Humor)

I am fortunate to have a number of people in my world I consider close friends (don’t worry… this isn’t going to be one of those sappy “I love you, man” posts… keep reading).  I have the good fortune of working with one of these lucky people on a new project. Don’t ask. I’ll tell soon enough. Hey, when I am ready to tell, I won’t shut up about it. I promise.

In discussing some important bits of information for the new project, the following conversation happened. I said to my friend, “You know I really hope I don’t become one of those people that is a big pain in your ass.”

Friend: But you’ve been a pain in my ass for twenty years.

Me: Good point. But not from a business perspective. And I am pretty sure it has been more than twenty years. 

Friend: Eh, whatever. 

There are not so many people I can have that conversation with and end up laughing.

The point is, that it is always good to keep a sense of humor. And remember who your friends are.
