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?
“Hello, New Person! I get to ask you one question that will determine whether or not we can become friends. I don’t know if you get the same privilege, but it doesn’t really matter if you don’t get the answer to my question right. Let’s see, what should I ask you?
“What?! You don’t care to be my friend if this is the way it has to be done? Really? You think that’s kind of arrogant and narrow-minded? Huh. Hadn’t thought of it that way, but I can see your point.
“Well, still, I have to ask you this question–
“I don’t get it? You don’t want to be my friend AT ALL? But–
“Well, okay then, be that way! I’ll call you if I ever think of a question!
“Don’t call you? EVER? Sheesh. What a grouch!”
