The Mountain Man and I were talking about friendships, how some are self-serving, others are complicated, still others are simple. We were talking about the self-serving friendships, and how it’s best to just eliminate those people from our lives.
And after having just watched an episode of Oprah (it was for research, I swear) I thought out loud: “ wonder how Oprah can possibly have friends who have not at some time tried to take advantage of her position or money”
To which the Mountain man said:
If I was friends with Oprah, I wouldn’t take advantage of her. As long as she bought the camping supplies.
He has no idea that Oprah went camping once, he’s just anticipating that as friends, Oprah would be interested in participating in his hobbies as well.
