Friends

I last wrote this blog five days ago. This might be the longest I have gone without a post since the start of the blog.  Even when I was on vacation, I managed to blog every couple of days.  I have no idea where the time went.

I could probably just skip ahead to today and talk about Today’s Perfect Moment. However, quite a lot of things have happened during the week that I feel are worth addressing.  I don’t want to dismiss something just to get caught up with the day.  This means that I might have to write more than one blog a day–or just stay a week behind for the rest of my life.

In blogs past, I have remarked that my friendships have remained stable since Junior high school and high school. I am a pretty friendly guy and can make friends easily.  I just don’t make close friends that easily.

My friends and I got together on Monday to catch up, hash out our highs and lows, drink beer in a bar that had it’s washroom as far as possible from where we were seated (three flights up, a bit of a traverse, and then one flight down–I kid you not), and give us a chance to embrace our inner child. We do this a number of times per year.  It usually includes food and sometimes we managed to catch a movie.  This time we got some decent food and the chance at some craft beer.

Just a side note, while I like the name “craft beer”, I think the term “artisanal beer” which is used in Central and South America has a more interesting tone and I think it should be adopted here. I know I appreciated it when I was in Costa Rica.

Having a night out with my friends was definitely a Perfect Moment. We’ve had thousands of conversations, but we never run out of things to talk about.  We repeat some of the same stories, but we never get tired.  That I was totally exhausted the next day didn’t bother me one bit.
