I really like Facebook.
Since joining a few months ago, I’ve made contact with heaps of long-lost friends. Many of them are old school friends who I hadn’t seen or heard from in 10 or 15 years.
And I had lunch with one of those friends today!
How awesome is that?
We hadn’t seen each other since we finished high school (over 10 years) but he found me on Facebook. And instead of writing endless messages on each other’s walls, we decided to meet in person to catch up. And it was so much fun!
We met at his art gallery in town. Yep, he owns an art gallery. Then we had coffee (well, I had hot chocolate … I don’t drink “devil water”) at two separate cafes, followed by lunch at an Italian restaurant. We just ate, drank and talked non-stop! We had so much to catch up on, and also had a blast reminiscing about our school days. Ah, great memories. I laughed so much that I cried!
We’ve both changed a fair bit in 10 years, and our worlds are poles apart: he is a gay art gallery owner, living in the central city; I am a work-at-home wife and mum, living in the ‘burbs. But we still get along famously.
We will continue to keep in touch from now on. And we have Facebook to thank for our beautiful reunion.
