    It’s a fine line that separates the outcome…both share similar characteristics but under certain conditions it can change from one to the other.

    A very deep response. Would you please elaborate more?

    I cannot be sure what Rainbow brite means is, but given the selfish nature of a human being, a friend can turn into a foe, and vice versa when “the gain”-be it material or spiritual- diminishes or disappears, or turns into a loss. But if I reason this dilemma in such manner, I can never really enjoy life, because I’d be living in a gray zone of cynicism. So, usually I trust my gut feeling when meeting somebody new, until he/she proves me wrong. Hence, back to Rainbow’s point about “changing from one to another” under “certain circumstances”…I suppose the bottom line is- the stone does not change its consistence, but it looks different when the lighting changes.

    Plantonic S, welcome to my blog. Thanks for sharing your deep thoughts. More we speak, more we learn. Thanks a lot, again.

    You’re right, sharing is a way of triggering thought. You have not shared yours about the topic in question. What led you to starting this discussion?

    On the day — that same day when I wrote that entry in my blog — I was at my dearest friends’ house, who is like a fine bloke to me but yet a Chrysanthemum with an excellent scent, having a drink and spending wonderful moments with her. Then an idea crossed my head — which became the question of that day: Friend or foe, how can you tell? I will share my insight with you too, my friend, upon I learn my friends and foes passably well.

    Interesting…for some strange reason I thought this question had some political connotation. Yet again, human relationships are, as well micro-politics.

    Please restate your question.

    Please define the word “insight”. Am I dealing with an ADD case here?

    And by the way, I don’t like the color of my avatar, such a weak color. Change it at once please.

    Yes, ADD, indeed has a connection to friends who turn into foes, who then recollect their friends as foes and call themselves as friends of foes who once were their friends and now are foes.

    And by the way, I don’t like the color of my avatar, such a weak color. Change it at once please.

    I’m not Obama Jr. to Change. I’m here to amend!

    I rest my case…..if you ask what case, I have no answer to you. I started coughing when I read your comment, I don’t know why, perhaps my severe cold was the factor? Speaking of cold, I have noticed that in 2 years our dog has never gotten cold or flue, so in the midst of wondering, I asked my dad if dogs ever get cold or flu. He responded: “Why not? If birds can have it, so can dogs”. Now, Mr. Gevorgian, was he being sarcastic?
    This is my insight today, in case you were wondering….

    Imagine if your furry friend got infection, like flu, from you, then it would just simply show how much you love your furry friend and how close you are with him that eventually he got infected. That would be lovely. And,

    Just like in friends vs. foes [reaction], where two parties understandingly act for their mutual [interests] and yet, without prejudice, sacrifice their merit for the [formation] of a [relation] which is mutual since the [Stone Age], sarcasm per se cannot be formed if it is not accepted as truth. And again, just like in friends vs. foes reaction, truth, and [the truth of the truth], later transform into sarcasm—that is when it is for interests but mutual. This we all do.

    We, ingeneral, like mutuality, but in this world: [nothing is forever.]
