Isn't it wonderful when you see old friends that you haven't see in a long time and they look at you and say, "You haven't changed a bit!"? When you know you look older, heavier, and different from the last time they saw you?
That's happened to me twice now this summer. Once in Phoenix in June, and once today here in Rochester. Now in June, the woman I had lunch with I hadn't seen in THIRTY FIVE years. And it was wonderful. Yeah, we both looked older, but we both looked pretty good still, and would have known each other anywhere.
Today, I had lunch with a guy I worked with back in Flagstaff in the late 80's and early 90's. He's probably 15 or so years younger than I am. He and his wife had one baby when I left there, they now have 3 kids, the youngest is 10. We had a blast for an hour and a half talking about old times and people from then and now.
It's just cool. And I wanted to share.
