Chelsea became an ideal playmate. The cubs’ happy laughter shows their approval as they rumble her to the ground. She piques their curiosity and they respond with empathy. Friends for fun! Perhaps Aristotle knew a thing or two a long, long time ago.
Friendship is often based on shared activities or interests. Joining in the treasure hunt at lunch time was a lot of fun. Other examples of ‘friends for fun’ might include a play-date when young, or belonging to a chess club.
