With really close friends, it doesn't matter how long it's been since you've seen each other, as soon as you get together, it's like you've never been apart.
We got to hang out with our friends Raj
and Scout last night who've been in Central Asia for almost a year. We played Settlers of Catan
, like we normally do when we get together, and even though it had been so long since we'd seen each other, it seemed like it had only been a few days. We were making the same jokes, and laughing at the same personality quirks.
It was also great to see their little boy, Andrew, who was a baby when we last saw him, and now is a toddler who runs around, and talks, and gets into trouble.
Andrew, Scout told me, is a rasin fiend. He is still adjusting to the time difference, so he will wake up at 4am demanding rasins!
He could say my name, and Erick's, and he liked our cat but was afraid of our turtle. I don't think the turtle thought much of him either. The turtle doesn't think much of anyone, to be honest.
Anyway, I digress.
It was fabulous to see Raj and Scout, and I'll try not to be too sad that they're leaving again soon.
