Everyone has friends, and usually they are people from all walks of life. Sometimes these friends are so alike that they seem to walk alike, talk alike, and have similar personalities. But others are so very different that it is an absolute wonder that they can even stand each other, let alone be friends. My two best friends are Raeann and Mike. They share some similar traits such as compassion, loyalty, and a great sense of humor. I love them for their similarities, and love them even more for their differences. They differ in everything from their views on fun, sports, and religion.

The meaning of fun can be different to different people. If you asked Mike and Raeann what the definition of fun was, they would have two separate definitions. Mike would define fun as a crowd of people hanging out, playing some pool, and having a few drinks. He also enjoys evening sitcoms and some relax time after work. Raeann would define fun as a few close friends, playing some cards or watching a football game. She also enjoys spending time on Facebook playing apps. Mike hates playing cards, football, and doesn’t even know what Facebook is; while Raeann hates a crowd, drinking, and television.

Their views differ on sports also. Mike will come up with any excuse possible to get out of going to a super bowl party. But if he has to go, he will be rooting for the Bears. He doesn’t watch any sports on t. v. or go to any games in person. When Mike was in school, he never participated in any sports or rarely went to any of the games. On the other hand, Raeann throws one of the best super bowl parties and watches football regularly. She is one of the biggest cheese heads you will even meet, no matter how bad they are doing, and she will always be the number one Packers fan. When Raeann was in school she participated in track and volleyball; she also frequented the basketball and football games.

Religion is another difference...
