I had an interesting conversation with my good friend Rahim and his lovely girlfriend Sanchia this past weekend in Atlanta. We were discussing how non-US people have such cool and interesting friends from other countries. I made a comment about how most Americans have mainly American friends and basically our American friends are just, for a lack of better words, just plain American! Sanchia replied that although they are just American, they are all from different American states and how that makes them unique. Such a good point Chi!! So I starting thinking about all my pals and all their unique qualities and characteristics and how although they may not speak 5 languages or graduated from some school in London, they are all on my “friends list” for some reason! I was so excited about acknowledging my friends attributes that I wanted to share them….here goes..I have friends that:
