Flaky Fables - Classmates
January 23, 2020
Do you often see people from your past, but you can’t remember their names?
The old guy ahead of me in the grocery check-out looked about two coughing spells away from the Promised Land.
I didn’t notice him until he tried to pay with a credit card, and the clerk told him it expired in 1997.Then, he noticed me.
“Hey, buddy,” he smiled, “how ya doin’? Remember me from high school?”
“Sure,” I lied, “but I don’t remember what class you taught.”
“Nah,” he replied, “I’m Ray, and I sat behind you in algebra.”
Well, this chance encounter led to a nice conversation....
