There is a new “quiz” out on the Face book that’s called “who is your true soul mate?”.
You’ve no idea how much this amuses me, because if it were true it could help a lot of folks out!
However since it is by http://www.Captainquizz.com I am so sure it’s legit! *Can ya feel the sarcasm drip here?!
I had seen it but don’t do a lot of those “quizzes”, although sometime I admit that I do it just for fun.
I really wasn’t into it but was amused to see my friends enjoying doing it, and who it said their soul mate was. I admit a few friends and their mates were shown as soul mates when both of them did theirs. Kind of impressive when you think of how it matches you to your Facebook friends list!
Some friends were amused to note that their “soul mates” were, as in real life, a true, stand by you through anything friend.
Apparently, I am my sister from another mister’s soul mate! She took the test three times so it must be real!
I laughed so hard I wet myself! Just a little.
We have been in each others lives for over 35 years, since we were kids. Literally.
We went through growing up, puberty, those heinous teen years, after graduations, marriage, kids, moving far way, long distance trips, marriage, kid, divorce, death – you get the picture we are from birth to earth Steel Magnolias.
So yes I was Very amused and entertained by this.
Of course we’re soul mates! We didn’t need a dumb quiz to tell us that!
We’ve been through more madness than I will ever tell but always come out of it together!
Soul mate predictor. Ha!
Ok, I will admit I was intrigued to see if she was my soul mate so I took the quiz. Twice.
The first person was one of my moms best friends and though I love her dearly and all I just don’t see it.
Amused by it all I tried again.
This time I got said friends daughter!
I was laughing so hard I spit out my tea!
I thought it would give me the same answer but no, apparently when I take the test I have more than one soul mate.
And you know something?
I realized we do have more than one soul mate on this journey of life if we are truly lucky. Or blessed, however you see fit to look at it.
We define “soul mate” in loose terms to mean the person we are meant to spend our life with as in being a “couple”.
I know I hadn’t really thought about all of the people who are friends and family that I have “clicked” with instantly and jump straight up into their crazy and them to mine and haven’t looked back since as a “soul mate”.
It actually makes sense to me in my twisted, strange mind.
Some of these people I have known all of my life, others I have known anywhere from a few months to years (a lot of those in the 10 plus year category).
I am a collector of people, friends, if you will.
And not in a body part in the freezer kind of way, but in the relationship kind of way!
I have friends from all walks of life, all backgrounds, colors, religions and each one of them views the world from a different perspective. Each one of them near and dear to me in very different ways.
Some of them would never get along but for some of us, we tend to clump together.
No one is jealous of time spent with the others because we are secure in our relationships and where we are on this wild and insane journey together.
So if this Face book “Soul Mate” predictor can’t tell me who my soul mate is, I am sure I will be ok because I already know.
I’m fortunate to have so many I can call my soul mates on this fabulous life experience!
Have a fabulously graceless Friday! I Know I will!
