Aaron (Moses' brother): Hey, Reuven! I heard that things aren't so hot between you and Shimon. Well, Shimon wants to make up.
Reuven: Yeah, yeah, we all know your trick, Aaron. Don't BS me.
A: No, I'm telling the truth this time. He really wants to make up.
R: What about the hundred dollars he owes me? Or when his cow gored my cow? Huh?
A: Well, he told me--
R: Don't bother with the explanations, Aaron. The truth is that I just don't value Shimon's friendship. He has lots of character traits which I don't appreciate. He watches too much TV. He eats greasy food. He asks his mother for advice when he should be making his own decisions. And his pants and shirts always clash.
A: Shimon's less-than-desirable character traits should not be the only criterion with which you decide how much to value his friendship.
R: Oh yeah? Then what criteria would you recommend, Mister I-love-peace-and-pursue-it?
A: Um, well. Friendship is about... uh... it's about getting to. Uh, How about we ask the blog community for help on this one?
Based on what do you decide whom you want to be your friend?
