I will, and thank you for pointing out on Facebook my wording mistake. I never wanted to imply that my friend was halfway intelligent. I was trying to be self-deprecating and call myself halfway intelligent.
I realized it was a bit confusing.
I have grown since I wrote this story. I just gave it a facelift but I didn’t change the message because it was how I felt at that moment. I might need to write another.
Thanks for the comments, Maya. Both here and on Facebook!
