In keeping with our new tradition of not getting each other giftcards — or any physical gifts at all — for our birthdays, Best Friend and I met today for one of our new and totally awesome birthday lunches.
It was wonderful.
I think you (at least I) honestly forget how nice it is to catch up with friends (A) IN PERSON and (B) WITHOUT YOUR CHILDREN and (C) in a more upscale environment than McDonalds.
We talked about everything (kids, work, family, etc.) and I left feeling rejuvenated! Why, oh why, in this age of All Things Internet, does it have to be so hard to get together in person?
I mean, who else can reminisce about that one Halloween when we were 11 and dressed up as Elvis and Priscilla?!
(Spoiler alert; I think I just looked like a hooker)
Let’s do it again soon.
