a little “f” & A BIG “F”

May 22, 2007

There are friends with a little “f” and friends with a big “F”. The first is a large group with sloppy admission standards while the later is an elite, time-tested crew.


A little “f” friend: identifies themselves when they call.
A big “F” Friend: doesn’t have to.

A little “f” friend: opens a conversation with a full news bulletin on their life.
A big “F” friend: asks “What’s new with you?”

A little “f” friend: thinks the problems you whine about are recent.
A big “F” friend: says, “You’ve been whining about the same thing for 3 years. Get off your duff and do something about it.”

A little “f” friend: has never seen you cry.
A big “F” friend: has shoulders soggy from your tears.

A little “f” friend: doesn’t know your parent’s first names.
A big “F” friend: has your parent’s phone numbers in their address book.

A little “f” friend: knows almost nothing about your family.
A big “F” friend: knows the medical history, dietary habits and marital troubles of everyone on your tree.

A little “f” friend: brings a bottle of wine to your party.
A big “F” friend: comes early to help you cook and stays late to help you clean.

A little “f” friend: wonders about your romantic history.
A big “F” friend: could blackmail you with it.

A little “f” friend: when visiting, they act like a guest.
A big “F” friend: when visiting, they open your refrigerator, put their feet on the sofa, talks back to your spouse and reprimands your children.

A little “f” friend: thinks the friendship is over when you argue.
A big “F” friend: knows that a friendship is not a friendship until you’ve had a fight.

    little F can turns into a big F. everything begins small. some grows some do not.

    Some simply disappears, Winn. 😦

  9. Tine Says:

    Oh could the picture be any cuter?! 😀

    Yeah, I’m glad that I have “f”s and “F”s, more “f”s than “F”s, which is fine with me, because I love the “F”s to bits :p

    All of us have more “f”s than “F”s, Tine. Hence, we must really treasure those few “F”s. 😉

  10. _butt Says:

    awww, that’s so sweet of your big ‘f’ friend.. 🙂

    most of my friends never get past the last stage of transition between little ‘f’ and big ‘F’.. that once we argue, it’s all over.

    some of them do though, but very few made it.

    As I said to Tine, we must treasure those few “F”s that we have. 🙂
    Always remember that the older we get, the fewer “F”s.. we’re gonna have, _butt.

  11. One of those little blurbs reminds me of Sneeeeew!

    Huh??? 😛

  12. alison Says:

    “f” for flowers! big or small, all beautiful. 🙂

    Hehe.. that’s true, Alison. 🙂

  13. may Says:

    I’m glad I have a few big Fs I can put on my list! lots of little fs, but working them up to the biggies… sweet!

    That’s the way, May. 🙂

  14. You’re not supposed to say ‘Huh?’ You’re supposed to say, ‘What’s Sneeeews?’ lol Now the joke is ruined! 😉

    Oppsie! 😛

  15. zewt Says:

    good to know…

    Thanks, Zewt.

  16. Yvy Says:

    it’s better to have ONE big F then many small f’s around.

    One big F is better than none. 😉
    Thanks, Yvy.

  17. You still didn’t say it!!! lol

    ‘A big “F” friend: asks “What’s new with you?”’

    I said, ‘Sneeews’ in the hope you’d ask, ‘What’s Sneeews?’, then I say:
    What’s sneeews with you? 😀

    I didn’t say it ‘coz I didn’t want it to go on & on.. not realising that by not saying it.. it still went on & on.. LOL 😆

    OK, Dabs.. What’s sneeews with you? 😛

  18. lol Not much. Just doing my Arts Assignment. lol
    What’s News with you?

    LOL Good Luck with your assignment, Dabs.
