Some people fly hundreds of miles to spend the weekend with you and buy you grilled cheese and laugh at you when the icy waters of Lake Michigan make you screech. Some people wait hours for pizza with you, and some people pass the time by making fun of strangers and their selfie sticks. Some people do not complain about the cold too much, even when it takes an entire hour to fail to light a house on fire at the Great Chicago Fire Festival. Some people do not run away when you later suggest burning down a very nice establishment because you are not being seated fast enough, and some people even offer to help you with said arson.
It's even possible that some people might kiss you and take you to the zoo to see a tiger, which almost makes up for some people not liking scotch.
