30+ Years of Friendship

Last weekend, I got to spend some time with Conrado who was home for the holidays. Conrado has been my friend since the 2nd grade. We’re both 37 years old. That’s 30 years of friendship. Can you believe that? A show of virtual hands if you still talk to someone from elementary school on a regular basis.

I got into an argument with someone over my belief that it’s rare to find people who are still regularly in touch with friends from grammar school or high school. He disagreed. I told him he was the exception. Not sure how to go about finding the right answer, but feel free to comment based on your experience.

Conrado, a friend, and I went to the Badlands in the Castro. Considering I am straight, I’ve been spending way too much time in the gayborhood. Wow, and people were getting down and dirty. OMG. Conrado made the comment that in Seattle, maybe you’d see 2 people dancing at the most. At the Badlands, there must’ve been at least 20 people flailing around on a dance floor the size of a Twister mat. If it hadn’t been a school night, I would’ve stuck around. Good music to dance to.
