Friendship Application Form: The Reveal

October 7, 2011

Friendship Application Form

Most of my friends are lacking.

Not completely, just in terms of being guys.

Skye and I recently decided we would no longer stand for having mostly female friends and naturally I made a male friendship application.

Then Mindee, being as fabulous as always, made my friendship application form into a Google Document.

(Is it acceptable to elongate “Doc”?)

(I clearly have no idea what I’m talking about.)

(In case you weren’t paying attention.)

Though she sent me the link to said form last week, I decided to wait on sharing it to learn what in the world this whole “Google Doc” thing was.

By this week, I’d realized I’m far too lazy to ever do that, so I’m sharing it with you anyway.

Fingers crossed I’ll be able to see the responses, or create some sort of pie chart showcasing everyone’s beach umbrella prowess.

Since we’re on the subject of my friendship application form, I thought I’d clarify a question for all of you.

If you were forced to take only one person to a deserted island, who would that be?

Would you bring that person along for companionship or nourishment?

Many of you seemed to think I was asking if you’d bring along someone you loved or someone adept at finding food in the wilderness.

And that’s just silly – what kind of deserted island would I abandon you on if there was easily¬†scavengable¬†food?

No, the point is… well, would you eat your companion?

And, would you take that possible future meal into consideration when securing your island mate?

‘Cause that’s useful information to have handy.

I’ve also decided that I will try to be slightly less sexist today.

(Just for the day, mind you.)

The friendship application form is now open to people of all genders.

So, please, if you have a spare moment today or this weekend or what the heck, in 2140*, fill it out.

I can’t wait to not know what to do with the results.

Strangely, I’ve yet to have a person in real life willing to fill it out,


*Sure, I won’t still be around, but Google might.
