I spent 3 hours with an old friend on Thursday night. We met at Caribou Coffee in Columbus. The one on Lane Ave, right by his house. I could have spent hours longer with him, but we both had places to go. A couple of things really struck me while we talked.
Wow, I thought, we're still friends. We're catching up with each other like time has hardly passed. I didn't doubt our friendship, I just didn't know what kind of turn it would take. The turn it took is great.
We had a blast! He is funny as hell. He told me the "latest" phrase. I'm not sure it's a PC term or maybe a "churchy" term. Doesn't matter, really. It's funny and I like it. The latest term is "jesus horse". Dinosaurs? The new term for them is "jesus horse" Ridiculous and funny all at the same time.
We laughed about politics, the state of things USA. We talked business a while. We "people shopped". We talked social media...me=yay, him=nay. We even had a gossip session about people from 25 years ago.
We caught up just like old friends do. I'm glad we had the chance to get together. I'm glad we caught up. I'm so grateful to still have him as one of my dearest friends. Welcome back, my friend, welcome back.
