Friending Up

We drove into the city tonight to dinner with our friends Jerry and Carol. Rain drops as big as dimes began to splatter our windshield as we parked so we had to make a run for the restaurant.
Carol is a professor at The University of Alabama, and Jerry is a musicologist.  It had been a while since we've seen them and we talked long after the tab arrived.
After hugs and handshakes, we paid our bill and made a run for the parking. The rain was more steady and the temperature had dropped some. We smiled as we headed for home.
The past few months it seems we've done a better job of seeing our friends. I'm not sure why we don't hire some big, ugly, ex-con to beat the crap out of us when we don't see our friends often enough.
"You ain't seen Tom or Judy, Brenda or Danny, Kaye or Jammie in six week. You know y'all got this comin'."  Kick, kick, stomp, stomp. 
I'm guessing that if we had a thug on the payroll, we'd be more mindful of our calendar and do a better job of friending up the people we love.

  1. Such and important reminder... and yet, I still have friends I've gone months without even talking to.
