OLD FRIENDS ARE GOLD
Just yesterday, my path crossed with an old friend. It is strange how small our world can be. There i was, sitting in my station. It was just another day at work. Then, when i was about to make another call i saw a familiar smiling face approaching. I can not believe it was my old friend standing right in front of me. It is good to see him again. In our lifetime, my reader, we encounter different kinds of people. Some are faces that merely come and go. Some became part of our lives. Some proven to be a trusted friend. It is sad to lose a trusted friend. This particular friend is one that i could consider as among the few that i can trust and confide with. And i thought i will not see him again after our graduation, until yesterday. His name is Ed. He was my classmate back in Informatics. I took a short course for computer troubleshooting in Informatics four years ago. More or less four years had passed. Ed was the top in our class. I always had been in second to him. If there was a competition, it was a healthy competition. I don't mind losing to him because he had proven himself. A consistent scholar and always a pecfect score in our quizzes and examination. How can i beat that? Anyways i am happy seeing an old friend. And i hope that meeting him by chance would be meeting him again just like when we were a group back in Informatics. And I hope for keeps, too.
