Skip out on work today and take a road trip to the nearest lighthouse. Once there, demand to see the lighthouse keeper.

Stuff your pockets with assorted nuts of your choosing. Throughout the day, in the middle of any conversation, reach deep into your pockets and proffer your companion a handful of body-warmed, unwrapped, pocket nuts. Should they accept, know that your conversation partner is a dear friend and true. Should they refuse, immediately toss the nuts into their face and flee the scene. A person who refuses pocket nuts is no friend of yours.
