I’m all up in your extended network!

Sunday night I saw I had a Facebook message from a very familiar name. Turns out one of my very dearest–I don’t use the word “dearest” lightly, especially with a modifier like “very”–friends had found me on Facebook. I can’t remember the last time we talked. It’s been years, so long ago maybe that I only had two kids instead of three, I’m not sure.

Because of some family issues–like her family is batcrap crazy–she disappeared for a while. I understood. Besides, once you make it to adulthood your childhood friendships take on a different flavor. I took what seems to be the traditional path of graduating from high school, attending college (and living with my parents, not something I recommend to my own kids, living with mom and dad while you’re trying to grow up in college), getting married, getting a house and a job. She and I took a chemistry-for-dummies class together in college and I visited her when she moved to Tuscaloosa. We even took a trip to Silverhill together back in, oh, 1999 to fetch some kittens.

I am glad to see that she has her stuff together now. My girl is not only in grad school and working hard (“nonprofit” has lots of meanings!) but she is a roller derby bitch. I couldn’t be prouder.

Raise a glass to old friends! Who know all kids of things about you and possibly saw you naked.
