Where the heck does time go? Does it all end up someplace. Elenka and I are off tonight to celebrate good friend's Paul's birthday. He and I met when we were 6th graders and have been best buds ever since. I went off to college in New York State, and he headed off to live in Southern California. When he returned, he lived on South Street quite near us, and we reconnected. We first met at Monday night Confraternity classes at St. Joes, ate fried chicken in American History class, chased the Gorham girls with Kendall, got beer from Mrs. M-, hung out at Erebus and cursed out Rob, hid out in the cemetery in the 'covered wagon', moved him into an apartment near St. Dom's where he met his black-haired beauty and now flash forward to 2012. We don't get together as much as we'd like, but catch up over java at least once a month. Today, he's digging his way around computers, and I'm working with writers. We're both enjoying ourselves and marveling at where these years have taken us. Tonight, we'll reflect some more.
