my best friend came home for a short ten days just last week, and flew back off to the uk this morning. before he touched down we lived under the impression that ten days was a long time, enough, in any case, to do everything we had wanted to do together – which mostly involved eating lots of local food and roaming around complaining about the weather. it turns out that we should have known that when it comes to the people you love, enough is never enough. it’s been coming to ten years and we still never have enough time, even though every time we part ways it is impossible to pinpoint exactly what rubbish we were talking about. friendship, i suppose. it’s been a good ten years. 🙂
