The Prompt: Litmus, Litmus on the Wall—If you had to come up with one question, the answer to which would determine whether or not you could be friends with a person you’ve just met, what would it be? What would the right answer be?
Do they have a good sense of humor?
The answer? Surely, you can guess.
Of course, the answer would be, “Yes!!!”
Of course, there would be many other qualities that would be necessary as well, loyalty, cleverness and honesty chief among them, but without a sense of humor, I don’t think we would become the best of friends.
