May 16: Buddy

“Don’t be all buddy buddy.” Have you ever heard of that saying? I have. Too much.

I’ve heard it when a kid wanted me to stay away from her crush. I’ve heard it when a teen wanted me to back off her best friend. I’ve heard it when someone thought I was being “a little too nice” to them.

It’s interesting how one saying can be used in such different situations.

I’ve heard it when someone was warning me about a new friend I had met. I’ve heard it when a kid was teasing me about my boyfriend. I’ve heard it when an adult was trying to dim my light from childhood.

One saying, even one word, can have such different meanings when you add it to different situations. Interesting.

“I’m a simple girl.” “You lied. You aren’t simple at all.” “Maybe I’m not. But if I said that, would you have stayed around to figure me out?”
