(don’t?) Gossip about your Friend

Now a lot of you guys might argue that gossiping about your friend is one of those cardinal sins of friendship everyone avoids. But let’s just think about this once. How well do you know about your friend? Huh? We can’t really have a test for that. Can we? Nope. So how about trying your knowledge out in the field.

Yes! I am telling you to gossip about your friend. It does not need to be a rumour. It does not need to be a secret. (Pro Tip: No secrets!) Maybe just an idle talk.

Would there be any limits? Yes! Limits are the same as what you would like for the gossip about you.

What if gossiping makes you look bad? No problem till you are in your limits.

Why do I want you to gossip? So that you can know how much you know about your friend. Pretty stupid. I know! But there is no test for this.

How does this work? You do some gossip. Your friend gets to know about it. Your friend comes to you. And hence you get to know if your gossip was true or not.

Could it go wrong? Yes, of course. It is up to you to try this. Don’t just listen to a stupid person and start gossipping about your friend. Just think about it once. Just think would you like to know how much you know about your friend or not. Huh? I know you want to know. But don’t listen to a stupid person.

Why am I promoting such ideas? I am kind of hungry for gossip myself. And I know a lot of people who are in a secret relationship but have sworn me not to tell. But it is hard you know. FYI my ears are wide open.

P.S. – Of course you can ask your friend straight away. Not that much fun.
