Old friends make the best surprise guests - especially if you were once roommates, because you don't have to flip out if your bathroom floor hasn't been mopped in a while and if all you have left in your refrigerator is half an onion, a Diet Dr. Pepper, expired milk and a couple eggs. (Yes, it's time to go to the grocery store.) So it was when Sara stopped in for a visit last night.
Things I love about Sara:
1. The girl can SING. You should check her out and buy her latest CD. She's going places. You can say I told you about her way back when.
2. She doesn't ask me about the weather. A conversation with Sara is sure to be honest and real.
3. She makes a great hostess. This summer all the roommates gathered at her house for days of talking and eating and general merriment.
Having one of these ladies around brings a piece of all of them a little bit closer.
