One of my best friends from high school and I got together for lunch last week while she was in town. I haven’t seen her much since high school, so it was exceptionally nice to catch up, and see each other in person.
Plus, we got to do the whole,
“Wow, you look great!”
“You look great, too”.
“It’s so nice to see you!”
“Yes. It’s wonderful to see you. I’m so glad you made time to get together today”.
“Can you believe how long it’s been?”
“It doesn’t seem like it’s been almost 20 years since we graduated from high school, does it?”
Conversation screeches to a halt as we both consider that we are both at the age that we used to consider WAY OVER the HILL.
Not to worry though, that minor discomfort (caused by feeling old) only lasted long enough for her to pull some 20 year old gems out of her purse.
You should know that I have been looking for my set these pictures for years (remember way back when when almost everyone just got 2 copies of each picture developed?).
I kept hoping one day they’d show up. And they have. Except not my original set. HER set which now belong to me.
This picture of her and me (I’m on the right) was taken the summer before my senior year as I was heading off to Europe for the summer. Don’t you LOVE the high, HUGE pants belted at the waist? And the ASTRO van in the back ground? If I’m not mistaken, those babies were the precursor to the minivan as we know it today…..
The set of pictures that Julie gave me also contained a bunch of pictures of celebrities from the past that we met one year at a celebrity golf tournament. Billy Idol, Hulk Hogan, Elvira, and more are just waiting to appear here…..
Just as soon as I scan them in….
Hope on over to Amanda’s place to link up with other Wordful Wednesday participants, and stay tuned. I’m missing it so much that I *might* be back in a more limited capacity than before…..
