A really nice surprise... After we went to bed last night, but while we were still awake (reading, both of us), I got a text message from my friend Aleck L. He wanted to know if I was still up (he knows about my early bedtime), and if I was interested in taking a Facetime (video) call with him and two other of my friends (and former colleagues): Frankie T. and Jimmy Y. Of course I'd be interested! It turns out they were all three back together in San Diego, and they thought of me.
That call was a hoot! The surprise factor made it even better. It's so fun to get back together with old friends, and three at once is more than three times better! My facial muscles still hurt from smiling so much :)
