I met with E and E today for lunchtime eats and activities. E attended the same hometown school as my spouse, and she and I were part of a quintet that had spent an afternoon together about 3 years back. The other E is the first E's fiance, and I'd never seen his face before today. Bluntly, I want to hang out with them again. Hell, I want to be more like them. My wife and I have this way of measuring people that groups them into one of two cateogires: people that make the world a better place, and those that don't. 2E belong in the first group. If spending 150 minutes can show me anything, it's that. The paltry lunch, the strong cider, and my first-ever cockroach/lizard experience were great, but in ten years, they'll just be details, and perhaps even forgotten. But I'd be willing to bet a small treasure trove that E-squared will still be great.
