There isn’t anyone out there who can argue that having friends is a bad thing. Friends give us someone to share some of our greatest moments of life with, someone to go to for advice, and someone to stagger around Canada with in a drunken stupor as you insult the maple leaf because you lost all your money at the casino.
Incidentally, asking someone whether or not it’s legal to walk around Canada without a shirt on is apparently Canadian for “I’m American and am challenging you to a fight to once and for all settle which country is better.” And they will take you up on this fight. Hence, why I’m now barred from entering Canada.
Despite the crazy and unique memories that we will all make with our friends, the process of making friends throughout our lifetimes is fairly regimented and standard.
