Legends from our own lunchtimes

Saturday, November 13, 2010

When ones cold gets to the post-nasal drip stage, one has nought to look forward to but the all night coughing sessions sitting on the couch. I haven't done that since the night after the double hernia operation, so this time it seemed relatively pleasant if somewhat tiring.

But even while trying to make light of sleeplessness it is in truth not at all as pleasant as the continuous round of catching up with friends that's kept us distracted from doing anything less meaningful.

There's a joke about Alzheimer's disease which suggests that one of the positive things about suffering from that particular infliction is that one gets to meet new people every day and that's a bit the way we feel. They are not exactly new people in our case of course, just friends we haven't seen for half a year, and while we actually haven't even forgotten each other, with each reunion it feels as though time has stood still since our last rendezvous.

It's a bit like the joy that comes as each new Lotus flower emerges really, we never tired of that either.
