Old Friends

Don’t you just love them? Especially the ones you haven’t talked to in ages and when you pick up the phone and give them a call, it’s as though nothing has changed. You still have so much to talk about and laugh about – and damn it’s just good to hear their voice and remember how much you really dig them? Yep. That’s one of the good, good things in life, isn’t it?

I had the pleasure of talking to an old friend last night and I’m still smiling. It was just great to talk to them and yak about…everything really. And even though we talked for three hours we still had a lot more to say to each other. I really love that, don’t you? Someone you like so much that you never really run out of things to say or talk about.

It’s so easy to get wrapped up in the daily crap and what is stressing you out at the moment and forget to stay in touch and all that. Ah, but when I do get back in touch I forget about the stress and remember why I really like this person – that I own a little piece of them and they own a little piece of me and that’s how it should be.

So, sorry no funny saracasm, no rapier wit – I’m just really happy that I spent a lot of time last night talking to an old friend.

  1. I think that keeping in touch with old friends is SO important. I agree – it puts a smile on your face and wipes away the stress. I have a dear friend (we’ve been friends since 9th grade!)that I only talk with once a year but each time we talk it’s like we never left off.

    Hey Two!
    Isn’t it the greatest? I love it when that happens. That no matter how much time passes, you’re just there with each other. It’s the best. πŸ™‚


  2. It’s awesome that you got to do that! I bet your old friend enjoyed it just as much as you did. And there’s no reason to apologize to us for no sarcasm or humorous posts. It’s YOUR blog and it is here for you to express yourself whatever way you choose. πŸ™‚ I’m glad you had a nice time.

    Hey Teens!
    Yeah I know, it is awesome. Friends are the best. Really, one of the actualy important things in life, when you think about it, eh? πŸ™‚


  3. Hi Annie,

    I love phone conversations with friends, they bring me back to who I am when I get all lost in my head, they make everything real again. I watch television with Adele on the phone.

    Love & Chats

    Hi Di,
    That’s so cute that you watch tv with Adele on the phone, I’ve done that too. LOL – oh Gawd, we always find a way to be with our friends, don’t we?



  4. I’m heading off to Toronto in a few days where I plan to catch up with friends that I haven’t seen in about 10 years, which will be totally fun!

    Hey Alex,
    I’m so happy for you that you get to reconnect with your friends. I’m sure it will be a non-stop love-fest. Does the heart good, doesn’t it?



  5. I have two friends who have been in my life for a long time, but I only see once or twice a year. And when we do, it’s exactly like you described. We just pick up the conversation as if we just left off yesterday.

    Hey Panther,
    Isn’t it the greatest that there are just some people who once you connect with them, that connection is permanent. Talk about fate or meant to be – I think it really is. I’ve often thought that we live our lives many times over, different names, different identities and we have the tendency to find the same chums over and over again. I like the idea anyway. πŸ™‚


  6. I love reconnecting. It’s like getting to relive all the good things all over again.

    Hey MJ!
    It is and it’s great. Friends make such a difference in everything. Thank God, for them, eh? πŸ™‚


  7. That’s just plain old nice. I also like when you are with a very close friend and the silence is not uncomfortable. You are just quiet together and that’s okay too. Now, on the phone, that would be awkward! Ha! Ha! Ha! LOL!

    Hey Bella,
    You’re right it is nice. And the comfortable in silence thing is a sure sign isn’t it? Maybe we could do it on the phone, it’d be interesting to try, eh? πŸ˜‰
