Conversation with my friend Gayle, over lunch, this weekend:
Me: I do not know how I am feeling. It is hard to put into words.
Me: I have been reading all about the lives of my high-school classmates and realizing that I really would not want their lives. Shocking.
Me: Let me see....happy? No, that is not it.
thinking thinking thinking
Me: Content. I am content.
Gayle puts down her fork and continues to be speechless for a moment. A big smile appears on her face.
Gayle: I am so happy to hear you say that! Really, I am so glad.
Me: Yes. So am I.....
I smile too.
Nice to have friends like that, no?
