A large duck

I have a lot of old friends, but there's only one I make any attempt to keep in contact with. He lives down in L.A. now, but I knew him in high school, we became good friends in college and remained friends over many years, even though we have lived in different states for most of that time.

Last week he and I exchanged emails. Nothing earth-shattering, just hey-how-you-been? notes, really nothing more than a ping.

Later, I realized how remarkably similar our messages had been, despite the fact that we live a thousand miles apart and have made very different choices. Both of us said, in essence, Spending a lot of time at work, things are uncertain right now, not much time for playing, but let me tell you about these cool TV shows I watch.
