Friendship

Tonight, I had the opportunity to have dinner with someone I haven't seen in eight years--since our graduation from college.

We decided to meet a few blocks from a certain Ivy League school (The picture was taken from in front of the restaurant). At first, I thought our plans fell through, since my friend was about an hour and half late. I was worried more than anything, since it had been raining really bad and she was driving from North Jersey. Dang Turnpike! She was stuck in major traffic. However, my waiter was awesome, patient, and really sweet. I think he felt sorry for me. (He earned a huge tip.)

What was nice about meeting my friend for dinner was that it felt like we picked up where we left off--never skipping a beat. We've kept in touch via email and her MySpace. What was really nice (that I especially noticed while I was sitting alone) was having company. I do a lot of stuff on my own and it was great to just have someone other than one of my parents sitting on the other side of the table talking to me. We had a really nice dinner and a three-hour conversation. I'm sure I ate too much and that it will impact my weigh-in, but sometimes it is better to just enjoy yourself.

It was a very long and very good day in my book.

So, I'm kind of tired, and I'll get back to posting later, tomorrow (really busy day and weekend). I'll get to the meme posts and to my responses to your comments, too. You can always enter my caption contest...dangit!

I am glad all went well.

Just enjoying yourself will pay dividends.
