Friendly Behaviour

I was talking to a “friend” about people leaving the country they’ve spent their whole life in, and settling down in an alien nation, and he remarked how difficult it would be to leave all the friendships behind.

That got me thinking. It occurred to me that some of my “close” friends are people who live two continents away! With others, many of whom live just a few blocks away, I don’t seem to share that much anymore…

Is there any one among us who hasn’t, at some point or the other, wished that they could talk smarter?

And, haven’t we judged others (instantly), the moment we discovered that they couldn’t even speak a proper sentence in English?!
