Junhong & Max
Today was Junhong's birthday party, a week later than his actual birthday because on that day I was too busy provoking a conversation.
For quite a number of years now, Junhong's birthday parties only have one guest - Max - and his entourage i.e. his family. This is Junhong's choice. Somehow, very early on in his life, he realised that it was too stressful when different parts of your life - different friends - collide under the influence of cake and presents, and decided that he only wanted to hang out with one friend at a time.
Max and Junhong have known each other since they were 2 and in these 8 years, they have never once needed an adult to help them resolve a conflict.
