Honestly, I never thought I’d do it but there I was in an Italian restaurant, with about 12 twelve friends for a birthday celebration. Of course, they pushed together several tables to accommodate all of us. I was glad to see one friend (Nancy) I hadn’t seen a quite some time. Once we hugged, I remembered two things: she gets sick very easily as she has a lung disease and I was sorting a yucky head cold. We agreed we’d have to sit far apart. (Although I would have loved to sit and catch up with her.) I deliberately sat all the way down at the opposite end of the table. Another friend (Val) was sitting with her. When made an observation about our children I wanted to share it with her but I didn’t want to share my germs with Nancy.
SO, yup, we communicated by text!!!
