I've been Grace in this situation. I mean, not EXACTLY this situation. That would be absurd. I have, however, been the friend who's just sorta there while a movie I'm not really interested in is on the TV, occasionally having input of some sort or another.
More commonly, howver, I've been the person people talk to about anything and everything, because I'm someone who'll pretty much listen to anything and everything, including this one guy's plans for how he would about taking over the world and/or survive the zombie apocalypse. I don't think he'd do particularly well at either, but just in case he does pull off the former, I'm going to go ahead and claim I always believed in him.
