Writing about people? That’s like asking someone to explain all the laws of the Universe. ...No - it’s a hundred times harder!
That indescribable, inscrutable two-legged ‘crazy thing’ watching the evening news, polishing its nails, arguing about politics or what to have for dinner is called Homo sapiens. Well, I’m a Homo sapiens, then. But I don’t watch the news on principle. I am surrounded by enough personal worries and minor tragedies without needing to stock up with more every evening. I polish my nails, but only my toes. And I have to admit - I do argue about politics.
Don’t be angry with me for writing three times more about things than about people. It just seems to be easier. Anyway, for the purposes of classifying - a typical human characteristic - the various Homo sapiens around me, I came up with the following:
Lover with the possibility to become a husband.
Acquaintance I know very well.
Acquaintance I know well.
I should point out that this hierarchy is purely based on my own levels of significance. There are also intermediate stages such as: co-worker with the possibility to become a close friend, or business partner with the possibility to become a lover :) But I won’t go into detail. NB Family members are exempt from such classifications.
