Grade School “fling” – reunited at 60 years of age…

D and I were very close friends in grade school. We had a fling, as much as children our age had flings. There was something about D that tickled me pink. Then came the news that I had to move. It wasn’t really far, but it may as well have been. We didn’t see each other again except briefly at a huge factory we both worked in and in separate areas, We didn’t renew our friendship at that time.

Around 5-6 weeks ago something told me to look him up in Facebook. I found him and friended him, but was afraid he wouldn’t remember me. He did and he remembered how close we were.

He visited me in the hospital. What a shock! Still the same old D.

We both divorced, but he remarried. Friends it is, but how cool to find him again.
