Faithful Sidekick

Robin the boy wonder did it for Batman, and Tonto did it for The Lone Ranger.  Ed McMahon and Chewbacca both played the role for their respective "main men."  Over time, lots of names have been cast in the role of "faithful sidekick:"  Barney Fife, Enkidu, Sancho Panza, Kato, Spock, Gilligan...

The sidekick is, most often, cast in a subordinate role to the main character.  Sidekicks generally do not make the rules or choose the goals or set the course.  Instead, they reflect the best of their "main man."  They provide a context, and act as a confidant.  They are simultaneously friend, guide, interpreter, voice of reason, conscience, fall guy, and straight man.

As things have evolved here, I have struggled to find the words that would describe my sense of who I am in His world.  Clearly the old language doesn't really work anymore.  No more of that sensationalized BDSM lingo:  Master/slave, or Owner/property.  We have shared history that will not allow for those designations to work anymore.  Somehow, though, in the last few days, I've heard my head whispering this "sidekick" idea in  my mind.  So maybe that is it...  Maybe I've graduated to being the "faithful sidekick."

    Can't tell if you think that is a bad or a good thing. Doesn't sound too bad to me.

    Can't say. I just wanted to read it again.
