Friend request?

I received a friend request. I had no idea this existed. What is it? Is there a seekret friends list? What honors does this bestow?

Each year on the anniversary of my birth, I get together with my friends for a special day.

ETA: I should (must) point out that this is most certainly not sanctioned by TPTB.

Not “honors” specifically, but if you ever need a kidney, you’re set!

And so is your friend!

I keep my friend list under my pillow and my enemy list on the coffee table. I used to keep them both under my pillow, but with the enemy list becoming what it is today, I was waking up with a serious crick in my neck most mornings.
