A tale of three friends

Something happened to me yesterday that was bizarre in a funny, surreal kind of way. All I could do was sit there and think, “It’s like I’m on Seinfeld.” Well, I also thought, “Man, this would make a great blog entry.” Unfortunately, it’s one of those things that I can’t post without sounding like I’m mocking the other people involved. Which I don’t especially want to do, because I love them and because they might one day come across it. So, next time you see me, get me to tell you the story. hehe.

In a completely unrelated story: yesterday my friends Theresa and Jessica came to visit me in the afternoon. In college, I discipled Theresa, and she and I spent many hours poring over Philippians, talking about Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter, sidewalk chalking our friends’ houses, working through issues with mutual friends, and just goofing off. She and I are similar in so many ways, and we would often get accused of sounding just alike or being the same person. Since she graduated college, I haven’t gotten to see her as much as I would have liked, and I miss her a lot.

Jessica worked for Mike, and we haven’t hung out nearly as much as Theresa and I have, but we have had a lot of fun when we did. We have painted pottery together and gone to concerts. I am the one who hooked the two of them up as roommates, and it seems to have worked out fairly well. When you hang out with two friends who know you in different ways, there’s a possibility that it can be awkward, but we had a great time. When I said, “Theresa, remember the time we made enchiladas and took them to Mike at the store?” Jessica chimed in with, “Oh, did you get to see the mouse in the back room?” There was enough connectedness for us all.

Yesterday was a day of catching up with friends, drinking coffee (I was reminded why I don’t often drink regular coffee after having some and being sick all evening long), laughing, and a teeny bit of awkwardness. The weather here has been lovely, and the visiting was a welcome change from the rundown way I’ve been feeling all week.
