Mary and Michelle called me tonight to remind me that in 2017, we will celebrate 50 years of friendship!
Yes, it was 1967 at American University in Washington DC and I was 16 years old (a child prodigy!) and Mary was 18 and we were freshman and Michelle was a sophisticated sophomore.
We were assigned rooms in the dorm, and we all had different roommates, but our rooms were three in a row. Talking to Michelle tonight, I said it doesn't seem that long... but then I don't even know what 50 years is... a hell of a long time that goes by so fast.
But we will do something to celebrate in September 2017... no matter what.
