You Think You Know People...Thank God You Don't.
I love, love, love learning strange facts about my friends that only come out in late-night conversations or alcohol-filled dinners. Like the fact that my friend (we'll call her Ann Lee) punched her husband in the man parts while he was asleep. And she was awake. (Pregnancy hormones explain that one.) Or the fact that a former co-worker once thought she was a giant goosebump. (You guessed it: she was taking her glaucoma medication.) My favorite? Is that a guy I know kissed another guy in drag, thinking there was a hot girl sharing his mouth with him. I don't exactly know why I derive pleasure from these things, but I do know it means I'm not judgmental. And that is an admirable quality under anyone's belief system.
