Easy Come, Easy Go
This weekend I went to watch some friends run in the New York City Marathon.
It was, as always, a very fun experience.
At one point while waiting for my friends to run by, I heard someone screaming my name.
It was a guy who was running. He was a college classmate I hadn't seen in eight years, and who now lives somewhere on the West Coast.
He saw me first. When I heard him yell my name, then realized who it was and waved in surprise, he jumped out of the crowd, came over and gave me a hug, took a couple of photos with me and then ran off, yelling behind him that he was glad to see me and we'd catch up soon!
This entire exchange took about 20 seconds.
He was always a social butterfly in college!
