Make new friends, but keep the old;
One is sliver, but the other gold.
My life-long friends C. & T. are coming up to visit from Denver this weekend! Life has taken us different directions, but we’ve maintained contact and friendship through the years. We met in Kindergarten, where they knew me as a scrawny girl with thick glasses, corrective shoes, and her head in a book. In junior high they were there when I upset the entire science room by flipping a table over on Bobby Somebody. In high school we could be found in our own world, often somewhere in Mr. T’s art room. We were close friends through highschool, and I even took some college courses with C. one memorable summer term.
I’m looking forward to a fun time with them, and some interesting moments as we catch up on our lives! I’m sure that my quiet, domestic life will be a bit of a culture shock to my “hip” metropolitan friends!
