I just got back from snagging a bite to eat with a high school friend. We haven’t seen each other in a while and I thought it would be good to see how he was doing.
A waitress kindly seated us at a nearby burger joint and soon we began a vibrant conversation. Talk drifted from our recent endeavors to the good ol’ high school days. He and I ran on the same cross country team and afterwards spent a lot of time attempting to mash buttons in an effort to destroy each other in Call of Duty (he always won). I noticed a few rabbit trails emerge throughout the discussion, though allowing each of these to play their course was quite enjoyable.
When was the last time you saw an old friend? See if you can get in touch with someone who you haven’t seen in a while. Try to reconnect and find out how they are doing. It’s pretty fun.
