Slow Dance With Someone Cute in this Open Thread

I’ve been thinking a lot about my college years recently, and how I met our beloved Sally J. (We were wearing the same Cure T-shirt on the first day of orientation.) We’ve been great friends ever since.  

Do you keep in touch with friends from long ago?

To keep it fresh, here is the lovely, lovely Adele singing one of the most popular Cure songs, “Love Song.”

The original version of this song played at least 1000 times on the boom box in our dorm room.

Aw!! An OT just for me?

I remember meeting you too. It was a good day. Other college friends just sort of appear in my memory, but I remember seeing you in the auditorium at orientation.

I remember when my grade school bff came over to introduce herself when we moved into our house. I was playing with my Barbie dolls in the sink. It’s kind of hard to look cool doing that, but we became friends anyway.

I remember meeting my high school friends in homeroom and English class on the very first day of school- I’m good friends with them to this very day.

This is a good thing to think about before I fall asleep!

I have been friends with my dearest friend since we were two-year-olds in the church nursery! our grandparents were friends since their teens, our moms went to school together (her parents met at my grandparents house and my grandma bought her mom’s wedding dress), so very early on our friendship took on a more familial flavour. it still blows my mind to say we’ve been friends for twenty-two years.

as for other long-ago friends, I went to school with the same small group from age five to age seventeen, so we all still keep in touch and get together during holidays. I like it this way, it’s nice to be a part of the familiar a couple of times a year, to go sledding or camping and talk over and laugh about old times and jokes.
