    Better he’d made no contract!

    …an excellent lesson for Calvin to take with him all through life.

    A buddy of mine says that no field of study that feels obliged to include the word “science” as part of its name actually is one.
     
    Similarly, any phrase that includes an adjective in front of “friend” (like “Facebook friend” or “contractual friend”) probably doesn’t describe an actual friend.

    @Eyjafjallajokull
    Good point. Why no contract for friends, but when you want to get married…

    I wonder if the same could be said for marriage? ‘If your partner is contractual, you don’t have one.’ _

    I learned that quickly in my thirties. I was always the one who invited people round for a meal, initiated get-togethers etc. When I stopped feeding and entertaining them, they stopped calling or coming round. I decided to wait and see if anyone rang up just to say hi. They didn’t. Moochers aren’t friends.

    One day I decided I really do like being alone. I’ve got 2 friends. We talk occasionally. Like it a lot. Flip side: I’ve gotten WAY TOO reclusive.

    Hobbes is spot-on, as usual.

    So this is where Sheldon got the idea for the Roommate Agreement and the Relationship Agreement!
