No room at the table

Why are friends so few and far between?  At a party on a Saturday night a few weeks ago I whittled my list down to a very small number.  It was horribly sad and I got horribly drunk.  And then a few days ago, it happened again and the list got even smaller.  But at least now I know where I stand.  Trusting humans is such a risk.  We give up so much and then it is so easy to throw it away.  The older I get the more I am wary of new friends.  Who are you?  Why me? Should I listen to your stories...and when I listen, I really listen...because you might turn out to suck, and then I've wasted all that time.  Life is short babe.  I want my hours back.  

My magic number is 5.  Just barely a handful.  What's yours?
