Yesterday's highlight wasn't the lunch discussion. It was going to my college roommates book signing. Lauren knocked off of work early and we headed to the library. We barely made it into the packed out room, but I am so glad we did. This was the first time I've seen Wiley in 8? years, and now he's at a podium in front of a room full of people holding up his first published book. Listening to him and seeing his face took me way back to a carefree but formative part of my life that I don't think much about anymore. I got to see Johnny Wadd, and lauren called me with a list of names that had made facebook comments that I haven't heard in years. When we were leaving Wiley at the library he said that he'd read my blog. I think i write this stuff down for myself and it made me a little nervous thinking about Wiley laughing at my sophmorish rambling. It was good to feel connected to a true friend that I'm very proud of though. That's the only line that I want Wiley to read.
