Random Reunions

There are usually a few people I know I'll see when I visit my parent's church, but this Sunday there were several extras. Most notably Brad, a friend who joined the Marines after highschool, was in town. I haven't seen him in several years so it was good to talk a bit.

After church we went to lunch at Bravos where we were squished in between two crowded tables. I have a phobia of being too close to people I don't know. My hair was brushing the back of the man seated behind me. It was awkward. I made it more awkward by being really whiney about it, but management took the problem seriously and reseated us.

Towards the end of the meal a girl came up to our table and said, "Oh my gosh, hi!" and for a second I had no idea who it was. I quickly realized it was one of my good friends from, gradeschool-highschool. Holly and I used to hang out with Tiffany and her sister, Tasha, all the time. Holly's been trying to get in touch with them for over a year with absolutely no success. She heard from a cousin that the whole family is moving too Texas soon, so she was even more frustrated.

They don't even live in the area anymore, but they happened to be meeting family there for mothers day. My friend said, "We were talking about you guys and how much we missed you and I was staring at you and all of a sudden I said, 'Wait, that is Melody!"

It was really good to see them again. Tasha and Holly were best friends in highschool and Holly couldn't stop grinning the rest of the afternoon. She's getting together with Tasha tommorow and hopefully we'll all be getting together before Tasha moves this summer.

So, that was our excitement for today.
