Life #10

What are the odds?

He is two year older than I am, was in a class deemed poor by the standards of the Ministry of Education and did not mix with our 'click'. We hardly saw each other in school, let alone talk and had the opportunity to become friends. But somehow, we did. And that was back when I was 16.

Last year, all thanks to the wonders of facebook, we reconnected. All it took was some initiative from both ends to keep in touch occasionally and the 11-year vacuum was filled.

How did we do that? 11 years of not knowing what happened to each other, of total MIA-ness disappeared just through Skype sessions, SMSes and phone calls.

And the icing on the cake had to be the moment I sat in his car - to finally see him in person again.

Some friendships just go on. No reasons needed.
