If you ever want to know who really gets you, start telling your friends and family that you’re moving from a four-bedroom house in the ‘burbs to a one-bedroom apartment in the city. Immediately add that you’re ditching most of your stuff because you don’t love it, use it or need it. You’ll either get an awkward pause, or you’ll get a quick and enthusiastic “That is SO awesome!”
Not that there’s anything wrong with friends and family who don’t quite get me, because, frankly, I can be a difficult subject. But the folks who do … man, I love you guys.
