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

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.
