AHA.. now you're done for. Tell me something you adore about ME. And saying "your kids" or "your wife" is SO not fair!
I think what I like about you best is your sense of humour. Your ability to laugh at everything, including yourself is really endearing.
I have a real hard time with people who take things, especially themselves, too seriously.
You can defuse potentially awkward situations with your good humour.
Also, you're a good person to talk to you. You're intelligent enough to converse, but not so intelligent that you think you know everything and therefore end dialog immediately by your overt and obvious mastery of the essential correctness of a situation. (You know what I'm talking about, the type of people who can't ever fathom being wrong, and turn conversations into boring lectures about how great they are.)
You spelt my name wrong... To make it up to me you should tell me something else you love about me.
I love your "never say die" attitude. The way you constantly strive for improvement. The way you try to understand people and fix problems, but don't obsess, and can walk away instead of beating your head against a brick wall.
I love the anecdotes you tell. The way you always share conversations, never dominating, always contributing. The way you make me feel like what I say is important and sometimes even interesting. The way you reach out to include others and make them feel welcome. The way you share you spirit.

Okay, I'm game...
*closes eyes and winces*
Re: Okay, I'm game...
I love that you're there to listen to me winge.
Since you didn't say I couldn't use "your wife" or "your kids," I love your family. You always make me feel so welcome. The love just oozes from your home.
Going home holds 78% more appeal because I know I'll see you, and the work away is 67% better when I know I'll get to talk with you.
With some friendships, it's hard to point to one single thing and say, "This! This is the thing I like." because it all just works.
And that is what I love most.

Re: Okay, I'm game...
It's only because I know you know all the words to the song MICKEY. ANd because I know you have pictures of me in an awful turquoise dress and matching twist-a-bead necklace. Some friendships are just too old to let go of because the dirt is so good. ;-) Seriously I'm glad we're still friends even after all these years, all those episodes of Dallas, late night phone calls and high school!
I love your style. I love the way you stand by me, even when I'm being a jackass. I love your goofy outlook on life. I love the way you self-correct. Mostly I love your attitude. It reminds me that life is still fun and should be treated that way...at least sometimes.
I've missed you so much.

Today of all days, I need to hear some good word about me!
The best thing about my time at Widget, Inc, was getting to meet, know, and now love you. Thanks for being there for me! ~~Literally, figuratively, and metaphysically too.
Re: Today of all days, I need to hear some good word about me!
The thing I adore about you most today is that you're treating for lunch. 8-)
No, I adore your perspective. Your relentless good humour in the face of adversity. Your fighting spirit. Your easy acceptance of people and situations. Your fair and balanced perspective which embraces both the positive and the realistic. Your smile. That sometimes you laugh at my jokes. That you're there when I need you.
