I honestly don’t remember a lot of people from my childhood. It was more than 20 years ago and I never enjoyed school very much. When I left elementary and high school, I didn’t really stop to turn around and look back. I never went through my old high school yearbook to look at old pictures of my friends and I didn’t join social media platforms so we could keep in touch. I never really knew anything about my old classmates after we left. A few weeks ago I ran into a guy that was on the cross country running team with me. The guy’s name is jack. Jack was working at a hotel where my wife and I stayed for the weekend. He was working at the front desk. I honestly don’t think he was the manager, but I could not tell. I recognized Jack as soon as I saw him. He knew my face as well. We exchanged some pleasantries and we made plans to get together and catch up later that evening. We met at the hotel bar. Before we started drinking, Jack asked if I wanted to go out back to smoke a marijuana joint before we sat down. I always knew that Jack smoked marijuana in high school, but now I was confirming that for sure. I hesitated at first, but then I thought why not have a little fun. We smoked a marijuana joint and then we went back into the bar to drink some beers. I was totally stoned and drunk by the time I went back to the hotel room to see my wife. She knew that I had a good time with my old friend just by the look on my face.
