Good Friends aren’t afraid to slap one another

My buddy, Ben Vollmer, said that to me a few weeks ago.

I had been nudging him (consistently) about something.

He responded: “Back off, I’ll get to you in January.”

And he will.

When I thanked him for his direct approach, he said, “Good Friends aren’t afraid to slap one another.”[ ™ Ben Vollmer © 2009]

And he’s right.

Being a good friend means, I think, being willing to put people in their place and say what others won’t.
