A friendly meeting at the pier
I have been out of college for almost 10 years.
- I rarely talk to anyone from my high school days, but an old friend reached out to me last week.
She was going to be in town for a seminar and she wanted to meet up for coffee. The woman and I were friends in high school and we even spent a semester in college as roommates. I was curious to see how she was doing, so I agreed to meet her at a coffee shop down by the pier. We met on Saturday morning for coffee and lunch. It was great to see her again. To be honest, she really hasn’t changed very much. She still looks the same, except 15 years older. We found a table to sit down and talk for a few hours. I was hoping for cool weather, but it was actually quite chilly. We were sitting out on the deck without heat, and I had goose bumps on my arm. I wanted to spend most of the day catching up, but it was too cold to sit on the deck. We decided to go into the restaurant where they had a few propane heaters running. Even though it was chilly outside, the propane heaters kept the temperature indoors warm and comfortable. Sarah and I talked most of the day and we made plans to see each other again on Sunday. We hung out a few times while she was here for the seminar. It was great to see my old friend and I hope she will call again when he comes back to town.
