Someone once said in an advert!
Tonight I got a call from a school friend (school now being over 25 years ago!). He’s been in the States continuously for nearly 7 years and it’s probably a little longer since we last met. However for some reason we don’t get to speak at some length, eyety when we do we end up talking (as we did tonight) for ages. It’s really weird in way – how is it that with some friends you can just pick up where you left off months ago, and talk for hours (literally) but yet not speak again for a few montsh again.
The time zone difference does not justify it, nor the remove (in time) from your days at school. I don’t get it, but I do enjoy it; and I do find it strange (if not vaguely amusing) that at times we do earnestly promise to email or call for a few sentences; but however hard we try – we end up not managing it. I wish we could.
But it was great to talk to him again, and I look forward to the next time!
