Throwback to my Best Friend
Oh man, Florida was awesome! From catching up with my boffer friends, to starting mixology to sleeping over with a couple of my best buds, I thoroughly enjoyed visiting. Back in California near the end of the trip, I met up with an old friend of mine, we'll call him Kris. I love this dude. We met in 4th grade in Mrs. Tillman's class. I remember the day clearly.
And I hadn't seen him since 9th grade when I visited from my high school far away. This fucker and I had a life of awesomeness. We had our rebellious times, not suited to out myself with on the public internet, and our fights. And our fun times. Then a falling out with high school, when testosterone kicked in and punched us in the jaw.
But I love this dude. We met up at a coffee shop in town and I immediately knew who this guy was. Kris, with his snazzy style and long wavy hair (not unlike mine actually, we were peas of a pod.)
We walked the wonders of Davis, towards downtown, through the streets, and into the campus of UC Davis. We chatted, got a coffee, although I got a Chai because I'm awesome, and caught up. Kris had gone through some intense rehab experiences and is deep into recovery. He had some time in LA with a record company producing beats. Now he's up near Davis in recovery from all the drugs he got into in his younger years.
He was wiser. I could tell. He wasn't as wild as I remember him. He wasn't as energetic. He was calmer, and spoke more intelligently as if he'd gotten older. More mature. I respected him for it. But he had that unmistakable smirk or a smile, that humor and that swagger I remember in old Kris.
It was so good to catch up with that dude.
Next post I'll tell you about Yelena, the owner of Boheme, a clothing shop in Davis and my trip to Florida! It'll come out next Wednesday, which will be the new release date for regular blog posts!
