I don’t know how someone can be the average of the five people they spend the most time with. First of all, people aren’t numbers and can’t be added, subtracted, multiplied, or divided. We are not mathematical equations (life would probably be easier if problems could be solved with equations). I am who I am because of genetics and because of the things that happened to me throughout the course of my life. Those events shaped who I am and the experience of those events define my personality and how I react to things. Who I spend time with does have a little influence on the person I am, but it doesn’t make up the entirety of my being.
Enough of that philosophical bullshit, though, and on to the question at hand. The answer is easy, and likely short. I already spend time with the people I would like to spend time with. My family.
My wife, Superbitch, and my 3 boys Baby A, Baby B, and Baby C. Now I’m no math major, but that only adds up to four in my estimation. So the fifth person, and it sucks to have to choose between other loved ones, would have to be my brother, Revis Edgewater.
Hopefully the choice of my wife and kids is obvious and doesn’t need to be explained.
The reason I chose Revis is because he is the most like me of all the other people I know. We have the same sense of humor, enjoy (mostly) the same things when it comes to entertainment (movies, books, video games, etc), and holds the same values that I do. We both love and would do anything for our families. We are almost the same damn person, really. It’s pretty cool.
When he and I are together it’s always a good time.
I could not imagine my life without my wife, kids, and brother and quite frankly, I think my life wouldn’t be worth living without them. I don’t know if I am the average of those five people, or how to even calculate that if I was, but I can tritely say that they complete me. It sounds stupid, but it’s true.
