Holy hannah. I just got off an almost four-hour Zoom call with some old friends. We’ve all scattered now, but we all did our undergrad degrees at the same university, and many of us attended the same high school.
Great time! There were plenty of “remember whens?” and the like. Also lots of “what the kids are up to” kind of stories. I was reminded of Stand By Me, the movie, and especially one of the lines in the film:
“I never had any friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, does anyone?”
We were all a little older than twelve when we all met up, but not by much. If there’s anything good this virus has done, it’s got me back in touch with some dear old friends.
