Today I’m having lunch with a friend.
We were friends in junior high, way back when
and reconnected through Facebook
I’m really looking forward to this
Sometimes I let myself get caught up in life
and forget to let myself have fun
I can go weeks on end only thinking
about school and work
and never laughing or smiling
or relishing the day
I’ve found that a lunch date with a girlfriend
is the best way to bring me back
down to earth
and remind me that it’s not always
just about school and work.
Good food, drinks and great conversation.
Exactly what I need right now.
