I absently check my e-mail at home and in comes a message from someone I’ve neither seen nor spoken to in nearly 20 years (long before I had e-mail).
I don’t know how yet because we haven’t had a chance to talk, but he stumbled upon my blog and happens to live within 15 miles of where I do. He gave me his mobile number and said he’s going to be at a restaurant Friday night within a mile of where I work (less than half that as the crow flies), and his e-mail signature indicates he’s some sort of executive for the company that manages that one and several others.
So, here I am, after amassing 213 friends on Facebook, about 200 of whom I could lose again and never notice, when out of nowhere drops the one guy my old friends and I ask about every time we’re together.
Completely by accident he found me and within hours of when this posts I’ll see him. Maybe I’ll get some answers to the mystery that’s been plaguing us all these years.
