A true friend's question

Last night Craig dropped me off after the Monday night 'gasp-a-thon' swim session at TVT. As he did so he asked me a great question. It went like this "Sean, were you flirting with the girls in your swimming lane?"

A potentially life saving question from a true friend. Hand on heart I could say to him "No, but I do want to be friendly". With my heart in my throat I asked him if he thought I was flirting. Thankfully he said "No".

What followed was a helpful discussion on being friendly to people of the opposite sex. I do want to be friendly to those I spend an hour a week with. But I don't want it to lead to anything else. And with a friend like Craig - I have another safeguard in place.
