Old friends: Last night my friend Trish, her husband Billy, and her son Caleb came over for dinner. Trish and I were roommates the first half of our sophomore year, until she left Taylor for Texas. We've sent each other maybe a handful of emails over the last ten years, and we figured out last spring that we were both moving to the same area. (Actually, she lived in Chicago, too, just not at the same time I did). We finally got together last night. I'm not really good at staying in touch, but its really, really good to connect with an old friend.
