I Have Opinionated Friends

I have opinionated friends. Bonita will not wear a mask unless it is Halloween. It violates her constitutional rights. What about other people’s rights? I ask her. She scoffs. I have opinionated friends. Shirley says all news that goes against her president is fake news. Her president is her new god. She has never been more fervent. What if it is all a bit of real? I ask her. She laughs. I have opinionated friends. Rita will not go outside because she is afraid of the Democrats. Elise will not venture out because she is afraid of the Republicans. What if they are just people too? I ask. They both smirk and make fun of me Behind my back. I have opinionated friends. Dorothy hates the liberals. They are all the same. They have the same mind set. The same brain. I like Dorothy, so I do not tell her I am a liberal. I have opinionated friends. Linda will not vote for a woman. Ever. For any office. Women are dumb. Says a lot about Linda. I have opinionated friends. I love them all. Get along well with them too, Keeping my opinions close to the vest. So we can all get along and retain our friendship.

You are the wisest of all your friends, Caren. We have never lived in a more polarized world so I agree, it's best to just keep peace especially when our leaders are trying to divide us. Blessings, Rhonda xx
