I found this image earlier on today,
I have chosen to write about what friendship means to me. I actually thought it was going to be more complicated than what cookie monster had to say, but then I realised that it is actually quite an accurate statement. Not as far as cookies are concerned, of course. Well, not for me.
For cookie monster, a cookie is the thing that he most desires. The idea that he would share a cookie with just anyone is out of the question. Therefore, in order to share a cookie with the cookie monster you would need to be quite important as far as he was concerned. Not only that, but the image also said that that cookie would be the last cookie. That means that you would have to be somebody very special in his eyes in order for him to even consider sharing it.
So, what would be my cookie?
That is actually quite a tough question for me to be able to answer. It is not that I do not want to share with all of you, it is simply because I do not know what would be the one thing that I most desire. Above everything, I really want to become published, but that is not something that you would be able to share. Well, I say that, but I have actually done just that when a short story was published within an anthology. I shared the feeling of celebration, pride, and achievement with every other author featured in that book, or even those books. That is not really what friendship means to me, because I would not consider any of those people to be my friends, mainly because I do not even know most of them! I mean, yes, of course, some of them have become my friends in the aftermath, but what I mean to say is that not all of them have become friends.
If not what I most desire, what would I be sharing? What does friendship mean to me? Well, I suppose that it would be the people that I most want to share my time with. I am not suggesting that my time is more precious than the next person. What I mean by that statement is share things like life experiences and memories.
Most of the people that I would consider to be friends would be the people that I have the most in common with. But, sometimes opposites attract, and we become friends with the most unlikely of people. To me, this would be people that are thrown together in life’s general ups and downs, and that become friends due to the fact that they are bonded together during their experience of life.
Therefore my cookie would be life. A friend is somebody that I want to share my time with, imagining that every moment is my last.
What is your cookie? I am dying to know.
