Reliving the Past

A friend of mine has a little dog, Elly, that I keep from time to time. I love her and so does my cat! We have known each other since college and he is just as funny now as he was then. Our common ground? The fraternity that he belonged to and the guy I dated who was a member. I spent many a night out there drinking at the house. Fun times, not great for the GPA but I had a ball.

We have chatted about the old days as he has dropped off Elly or picked her up but other than that we haven’t spent any time around each other. He has always been gracious and wanted to repay me for keeping Elly. To me, it was no big deal to keep her. She likes to snuggle, run around the apartment and sleep.

So tonight I met up with him for a drink and dinner. And I haven’t laughed that hard in a long time. The stories from college are still funny. His first toga party ended up with him wearing his toga to class the next day. The cruise that my ex and some of the guys went on during their first year in college, OMG! those were beyond funny and some I hadn’t even heard of before.

Parts of college were rough for me. I was struggling with insecurities and lack of money and then the drama of being with the ex but those guys were always great to me. It was a fun place to go and the memories and friends will always bring a smile to my face.

Homecoming was this past weekend and I am kicking myself for not going. They tailgate now and from what I have heard, my little alma mater  actually is starting to look like a real college on game day. I opted not to go because, well, I didn’t want to go alone. Even though I would be among friends once I got there, I felt like I would be the goober that would be there alone.

But sitting with an old friend, laughing about college and all the parties that we went to, that is priceless.


What you see is what you get; I am a Nashville girl who is single, again. I use the blog to get my inner, tortured, wanna be writer angst out. One day I just may write a book. I have been stumbling through life for 43 years now, I love to cook, read and figure out more embarrassing ways I can either harm myself (thank you hula hoop of 2010 and the case of the thrown back) or just prove how inept I am at household chores and dieting. The people you read about on here are real but most have had their names changed to protect the innocent and not so innocent. And I really should make a list of them so I can remember! Enjoy, read, mock, laugh and comment, it really isn't difficult. Plus, I would prefer reading comments from real people as opposed to the weird spam comments I keep getting. Plus, I will always find the hardest path to follow and take that one, why would anyone want to take the easy way?!
