Way Too Damn Long

Tonight we're all going to the circus.

Tonight we're all going to the circus courtesy of an old friend that I haven't seen in... 14 years.

Did I mention we're going with her?

And for a brief second I panicked.

I mean, 14 years is a LONG time not to talk to someone and then be forced to make conversation. What if we don't get along? What if we can't find anything in common? What if it's awkward?

Like I said, for a brief second I panicked.

Then I remembered how much I loved and adored this girl when we were younger. She was a huge part of my life for years. She introduced me to Gone with the Wind. She taught me to write. She inspired me.

She was my other half.

Surely two people who had so much to do with life at such a pivotal point (the teenager years) won't have any road blocks in conversation when they meet up again for the first time in 14 years.

So since that moment I panicked (for a brief second), I've been filled with excitement. I've been filled with giddiness.

And I'm ready to put an end to a 14 year road hump.

Have a great time! Plus, if there's ever a lull in the conversation you'll have something to watch.

Reconnecting with old friends is so awesome! At least if you ever did (which you won't) run out of convo you can watch the circus.
