Last week, I walked home with TR for the first time in at least a month. He is so busy that I rarely see him these days. I hung around while he finished up some work and we left around 7pm.

On the walk I said, "I have a secret." I told him that things were over with Kent and that I'd started seeing someone else. TR and Curt only know each other by sight, mostly he was interested in the general news that I'm seeing someone new.

He said, "Wait, before you tell me more, let me ask a few questions. First, is he a Republican?"

I laughed, "Yes!"

"Is he separated but not divorced??"

Still laughing, "No!"

"Is he ten years older or younger than you?"


TR said, "Sounds great!"

I said, "You left one out--'is he Catholic?' He is." We both laughed.

"You're right--I forgot that one."

"Nobody's perfect."

Curt has had some difficulty believing that TR and I are friends based on my extensive work-related complaints about him. I never doubted that we really are friends but it's nice to be reminded of that. Who but a good friend would be able to ask me those questions and get me to laugh at the same time?

Grateful for: old friends.
