So the other night I was invited by a friend to go to a get together. It was at a condo downtown Salt Lake.... a condo in a 30 story building.... with a doorman... elevators..... and a hot tub on the roof! I felt like I was back in Chicago! Who knew that such a building existed in Salt Lake City.... certainly not me! So fun!
Anyways of course I ended up knowing a lot of the people at this gathering for my past.... 5+ years ago. I mean I was getting teased about my Idaho pride (which I have long since stopped showing) or boys that I kissed in high school... So clearly I've known a lot of these people for a lot of years.
Anyways when I run into people that I haven't seen in years it is always kinda awkward because although I haven't seen them of course I have been following them on their facebooks, blogs, twitters, myspaces or their friends facebooks, blogs, twitters, myspace... so it's hard to know what to talk about! When I ask them what they have been up to... as they start to tell me here is what is going on in my head:
"I went to Europe a couple of months ago."
-Yes, you went with 3 other nurses in your hospital.
-You went to France, Germany, and Spain, although I am kinda shocked you didn't go to Italy.
- That picture of you trying to hold the Eiffel Tower in your hand was fun.
"My sister got married last week."
- The guy she married looked a little strange
- Although the brides maid dresses were darling
- Was the food as good as it looked?
"I'm not really dating anyone"
-Yeah, I saw that that cute girl that you took to Vegas a few weeks ago is now dating your best friend.
-It's a shame cuz she was really cute.
- And I saw that your ex that you dated for 2 years is now living in Thailand teaching English.
-I wonder if you still want something to happen there.
But the question is... do you tell people you run into from years ago that you stalk them? Or are you just like me and smile and say, "Oh! You went to Europe! Where did you go?"
