Besides the fact that I am under the weather, I got to hang out with Don for several hours last night. I haven't seen him in over 2 years, and despite the fact that he lives 300 miles away, and I've only ever met him 3 times in person (including last night), I consider him one of my closest friends. We talk just about every day, and we just talk about all sorts of things. It's kind of funny, since he is 12 years older than me, but several of my other friends are older than me by 5+ years too, weird. I think I'll be hanging out with him tonight again, before he heads back to Detroit. Maybe I'll see him again in another 2 years :).
More posts forthcoming in the near future... after I get some hot tea.
