I had called an old friend who I hadn't been in contact with for a while, hoping to rekindle our friendship. When she picked up the phone, I could tell that she was pissed off with me. She made this clear by the tone of her voice. I felt bad. I had missed out on so much of her life. She was married now and had just had a baby. I apologised for not being in touch and we had agreed to meet up. Time went on, and I was now in the supermarket, walking the aisles. As I did so, I saw a different friend (who I used to go to school with) She was completely naked, as if this was the norm. It looked like she had gone a bit 'boho' and she had several children with her. I pretended not to see her and quickly walked by.
