Old Friends

Two-old-dogsI had dinner yesterday with an old high school friend, Jeff. We reminisced about our teenage years, and then went on to talk about the times we’ve gotten together since. I couldn’t help smiling because when I was 17, thinking about our “long” 2 1/2 year friendship, I’d written,

“Old friends sit and talk about the good times they used to have. But really old friends sit and talk about the good times they used to have sitting and talking about the good times they used to have.”

It took a few decades, but that youthful prophecy finally came true. ;>)

  4. It’s what old friends do. The most precious memories are those of talking heart to heart and remembering those things that were dear to us then versus now. Good story, Mitch.

    At our reunion I felt the same way. In fact I started making friendships with some from our class that I really did now that well. After the reunion we have been connecting via email. Mitch I think of you as one of those old friends. We did not connect that much in high school but reading your email hearing I feel like maybe I could also be one of those dogs, only this dog is in jail. That should shake up anyone reading this comment.
