bg/ish: Old Friends
I'd been getting the occasional joke forwarded to me by a good friend of mine who I have not seen or spoken to in a long time. We never had a falling out or anything like that, it's just life. There were a few of us that worked together for several years. We used to always make time to get together for meals, a night out at one of the local bars, or we'd organize a wine tasting party at someone's house.
That's all the background you really need I guess. The point is, yesterday I decided to reach out and reconnect. It has been far too long since I have heard from my friend...
Been appreciating the jokes! Hope you're doing well brother. I do miss you and the crew. My new phone... 415_______. Let's get together the next time I'm in soCal.
His reply, as per his usual style...
Bundle up against that San Francisco chill my tall, ungainly semi-black brother (with a slight dose of gonorrhea). Us three misses thy drunken companionship too. I'm not sure about you, but there are days when I simply miss the brotherhood of them pacsun days. Not even a sniff of pussy can fill those days when we chatted around the Frawlsters fireplace and drank copious quantities of wino. Just us four guys and the universe. No fucking complications. No goddamn women. No one to tell us when to stop drinking and what to drink.
Let me know when you are in town, I'll organize a get together at who else's place ....Frawleys :)
In the meantime hope you have some poontang this weekend to keep you nice and warm.
Yup. Damn it's good to hear from old friends.
