“I’m going to be in your part of town today”, I texted to a friend. “Think we can catch up over lunch?”
She didn’t have anything that couldn’t be re-scheduled, and an hour later, we were sitting at a café, giggling like we would when we worked together and met everyday. What we spoke about, I don’t remember. All I know is we picked up from wherever we’d left off the last time we spoke!
It is nice to have friends with whom you can make elaborate plans to meet, but nicer still is having someone you can meet spontaneously.---------
