      ( 7:10 AM ) teahouse

I met two female friends for dinner last night.

They've both been good friends of mine for over 5 years, but neither had met the other before.

To be honest, I didn't think they'd like each other much. They have very different personalities.

Although I love both of them dearly, when I introduced them to each other, I suspected that there wouldn't be much for them to talk about, and that I'd be the main one driving the conversation.

I was dead wrong.

The whole evening it was like the two of them were soulmates discovering each other. The following things were uttered over dinner:

"Are you the youngest in your family? So am I!! We have so much in common!"

"Were you looking to change jobs? Why don't you interview at my company? We'd love to hire someone like you!"

"Did you just get married? Me, too! Which florist did you use? Isn't it a letdown after the honeymoon? It's like you suddenly have so much time! What did you do about the gifts you had to return?"

"I have a 2-year old niece, and I love her! You have a 2-year old niece as well? Aren't they so much fun? We should get them together! I can't wait to have babies, can you? We're going to try right away."

"Oh, my gosh, I feel that way about the current geopolitical situation, too! I didn't think anyone else agreed with me! THB certainly doesn't!"

I barely spoke at all over dinner. I felt like the third wheel!

Afterwards, the three of us left the restaurant. We were standing on the sidewalk, saying our good nights.

Next thing I knew, I turned around and the two of them were jumping into a cab together.

I swear, it was like that scene in When Harry Met Sally.

One minute you're meeting your friends for dinner; the next, you're walking home alone on the Upper West Side.
