The last time I talked to an old high school buddy was more than a year ago. Called him last night and found out that he will be flying out to Afghanistan on Monday for a year on military assignment. Our conversations in the past had been about career, life and girls. The topic, however, had changed this time. I wish him all the best.
The last time I saw my old man was more than six years ago. Spoke to him this morning and he said he’s getting weak, even though his tone is still clear and powerful. The man is in his early 70s. Hope he still can come and join us.
