One of the characteristics of a friend is that you can laugh at him and he’ll not take offense. I don’t know how many times I have been shamed by my inability to hit a duck or even a clay target. I’ll look at my gun as if someone has secretly sabotaged it, while my friends are laying on the ground laughing at me while I try to find an excuse for my bad shooting.
- The ability to laugh at and with one another lightens the atmosphere and sometimes helps the “medicine to go down.”
- True friends can take the harmless “ribbing” that comes from this closeness
- Joy does a heart good
