Things are at least a little back to normal...
In the "we-had-civil-dinner-conversation-including-old-jokes-talking-about-good-new-music-and-I-hate-black-olives-so-he-ate-them" kind of way
and it was a good note to end on.
We were supposed to be friends. Neither one of us knew that "friends" was all that meant. I'm glad to have my friend back, even if it was just for a dinner.
