Okay, check this out…
Out of nowhere, I get an e-mail yesterday. It is from a guy who I played with when I was a little kid in Hollis, Queens! A guy who has not seen me since I was, oh, 10 years old or something!
Chatting with him on ICQ was a total trip. I have a friend now who I work with who I have known since I was 16 (making that a 14 year relationship), and that is interesting enough, but here is someoone who has no idea what I’ve been up to for a hugely substantial part of my life, now me of his.
Anyway, I’m looking forward to getting to know Nicky (I feel it right to just call him Nick now!) again, and I wonder - has anyone here ever got to know someone you lost touch with so long ago? Not just in terms of time, but in terms of the age you lost touch?
I mean, running into someone at 55 you last saw when you were 35 is something, but 10-30 is something else entirely…
