Yesterday I had lunch with an old friend of mine named Jenny. Back in the olden days I used to spend a lot of time at Jenny's house watching football, and hustling losers like KJR at pool. That seems like a lifetime ago. I think we used to punch Jenny in the arm a lot too. Mostly out of love but she didn't always see it that way.
I don't really get a chance to see her all that often considering that I live in Louisville and she lives in Morris county NJ. For those of you asking that's like 730 miles. So I was really excited when we made plans to have lunch.
When I got to the dinner(that's where people who live in NJ go to eat Lunch, but I'm not talking about The Dinner, just another dinner in a different town) I easily spotted her. She was in the back putting one of the cutest kids I've ever seen in a baby chair. Jenny was dressed very nice and looked good. Me? I was dressed like a bum, but that's how I roll. I'm a hooded sweat shirt type of person. Always have been, always will be.
Even though It had been a while since I saw her it didn't feel awkward at all seeing her and spending time with her. We didn't spend that much time talking about the past. We asked each other about a handful of people, and then we moved on to talk about more important things like this blog for example. I spent a good 20 minutes plugging blogger and trying to convince Jenny to start her own blog. It's not like I work for the bastards or anything but if you were listening to our conversation you would think that I did. Really I just think it's a very cool way to keep in touch with people on a daily basis and meet new friends as well. Plus, I like adding links to the log.
I also spent a good time picking Jenny's brain about Pregnancy, child birth and motherhood. It's fairly obvious that her son is going to play professional football when he grows up (every father's wet dream). I could also tell that Jenny was very happy raising her son. At the end of the lunch date she let me hold her son for a couple of minutes. That was awesome. I really enjoyed spending time with Jenny and her son and I'm looking forward to reading her blog.
I spent a lot of time around babies this past week. I spent three wonderful days with Jill and Will's beautiful daughter sylvie and then yesterday with Jenny and Justin. Have you ever felt like the good lord was trying to tell you something?
