So I'm meeting one of my old friends on Friday

Real Estate Agent with Samson Properties

So Friday, I have a 'date' with one of my friends from way back when I used to work at the Bronx Zoo.  I always had a crush on Meg, and she never knew it, how could she be so oblivious, I would ask her years later.  I'm still trying to figure out what to do, should we go to Chelsea Piers perhaps for some bowling or how about something we would have done 24 years ago, go to a movie up at Movieland on Central Avenue in Yonkers!  LOL

It seems silly, but I am nervous about meeting her after all these years since we haven't spoken in so long, will it be awkward or will we just be able to talk and interact as if the time never went by? 

I worked at The Bronx Zoo for about 3 or 4 years, in retrospect, it was one of the best jobs I ever had.  We had so much fun when we worked, everyone was pretty friendly to one another, the job was fun, got to hang out with a lot of girls, doesn't seem like a big deal, but being a 14-16 year old it was a pretty big deal.  I was making a couple of bucks and hanging with my frineds.  Although we were friends none of us really hung out after work, so what does that make us?  Well, who am I kidding I am sure I was invited, but I was and still am not the hanging out type!

That really was a fun time, it seemed like I had no care in the world, I went to work, I came home, Mom had dinner on the table, I would eat, and then watch tv or go out with my friends.  Life is so much more complicated now, there are mortgage to be paid, bills to be paid, people to take care of, and friends to re-connect with!

What do you guys think I should do?  Where should we go; what should we do?

What does this have to do with Real Estate?  NOTHING!  Hey I do have to have a life right?

I am sure that what ever you do it will be fine...I have met with many friends from high school that i haven't seen since we graduated..it always is easy to pick up right where we left off..no awkwardness! 

I wouldn't do the movies as you won't have opportunity to visit and catch up...better to go for dinner or a coffee! 

have fun...and most importantly...be your self!!
