In reply to “Three Old Friends”

As I read BloodSpite’s post of the three of us, I couldn’t hold back a few tears.  My wife thought it was cute…

Today, and for the past few days I haven’t stopped thinking about it.  In middle and high school, we three were inseparable.  We have seen a lot in our days.  We saw the use of Pagers, and beepers rise, and fall.   We used the first cell phones, watched them get smaller and smaller, then bigger and bigger, (I still don’t understand why).  We’ve seen our share of  hard times, and good.  We have seen many girls, and in some cases, we’ve seen each others girls, but that’s another story.

We were three misfits, as it were, and maybe that’s the reason we found such closeness.  We started out as “nobody’s” and ended up Kings of our school.  Heck, we even raced cars a bit.

I can recall one day in our senior year, we all left school early, and raced back to Calimus’ house, weaving in and out of traffic, and I almost lost it and hit Bethany Bridge….but alas, I was the best driver in the world, (in my own eyes).  And the time of BloodSpite’s Brouha on Peoples Valley Rd’s railroad tracks.

Dang, we were indestructible!  We lived without a care in the world, Kings..

I wonder…

If we’d have met today, for the first time, would we like each other?

If you look at all our lives after High School…you wouldn’t find 3 other lives that were as different.  I guess that’s what makes us such good friends.  Its not where you are, or where you’ve been…its who knew you before you were you.  That’s what makes true friends, knowing someone for so long that no matter what happens ion your life, when ever you happen to meet up with them later in life, there is still such a strong bond that nothing else matters.

I guess seeing that old picture stirred up some kind of mushy sentiment, whatever it was, I can say that I am very fortunate to have such true friends.

  • Good question. I’d like to think we’d still be friends, but your right.

    Our roads are vastly different now. Its a testament to the experiences we had as a group thats kept us together today. The “Glory Days” as Springsteen sang.

    Calimus often accuses me of thinking too much. I think my traveling has made very sentimental. I consider these things often. The irony is everywhere I have been I have told myself “Damn, the guys would really love this.” over a thousand times. From mountain tops, to foreign countries.

    Kings huh? I dunno about the King, but I damned sure like playing in the court :)
