Jeff of the Day #2367

I bumped into Jeff near my work a few months ago, and had every intention of getting in touch with him afterwards. Many moments have slid away since then, but when I heard he was living nearby as well I finally made the colossal effort of saying hello again.

We had lunch today, which I think may well be the first time I’ve done any sort of activity with just Jeff. He was part of our group of friends at Berkeley High, but all of our interactions before were in a group of some sort – save for our online conversations, where we both talked about the things that troubled us over the years.

So we talked again over lunch, but conversation revolved mostly around work and various technical tidbits. As we were saying goodbye it became clear that we hadn’t really caught up at all, and that there were many other things left for us to talk about. This is how it goes, it seems; often it’s easier to talk as if you see each other every day. There will be time later – it sounds like Jeff puts on some lovely dinner parties.
