Old friends

The coolest thing happened yesterday. There was a writing class at the library last night and I don't usually get to go since it's on the same night as boy scouts. My hubby and oldest son go every Tuesday.

So, there was no scouts last night. I got to go the the Stephen King discussion on the book he wrote on writing. I was so excited because I really wanted to go to this particular class.

Well, there was this guy there who had never come before. He looked vaguely familiar. He told us his first name, then we began a great discussion. There were only eight of us so it was a fun, small class. A little ways into our talking, I asked him his last name. He told us and true to my silly nature, I say, "Shut up! Brock Cheny! I can't believe it!" I got up and hugged him. I had to tell him my maiden name because he didn't recognize me either! We had been good friends in high school but haven't seen eachother for over twenty years! TWENTY YEARS! It was so cool! I was so glad I went! It was wonderful to catch up. He was one of those friends who I just loved, like a brother, ya know? So cool.

Anyway, it made my night. Now I wish I would have worn make up! He did say I look like Meryl Streep though, so I'll take that as a compliment. I have actually connected with quite a few old high school frinds lately through facebook. Love that!
