Catching Up With I-Ice

I had dinner with my oldest friend last night. We came up with nicknames for each other back when we were in first grade. I call her I-Ice and she calls me Rob Rob πŸ˜€

I hadn’t seen Ice in more than 3 years, we can’t even pin down exactly when it was we last got together but what is really wild is she’s a doctor now, I guess she’s now Dr. Ice πŸ˜‰ I’m so proud of her and it was so nice to catch up. It’s funny we rarely see each other but even as years go by the friendship is always there.

I got a kick out of how she told me all about being a resident and how hard it is…working 80 hours a week and being paid so little…puts other jobs into perspective. She also informed me how much Grey’s Anatomy is not realistic and that she never looks as good as they do when she leaves her shift. In fact she included that she basically lives in her scrubs and does not show up in dress only to change into scrubs before her shift. It’s good to know that even now that she’s Dr. Ice she’s still the same I-Ice.

I can’t believe the girl I used to play make-believe with, the girl I played My Little Pony with is all professional and stuff. Growing up is just fascinating, people get careers, get married, have babies and all that stuff. I still feel like a twenty year old. Yeah I know I am a twenty year old but I don’t feel like an adult like my parents or like I’ve made any monumental achievements.

I guess it’s just scary enough to be living in the adult world without actually becoming an actual adult. Someday it will happen but for now I think I will just watch Grey’s Anatomy πŸ˜€

    So, was it wierd at all, catching up with a friend after so long. I recently a few months back got off on the wrong foot with a good friend, though I did suck it up and sent off a nice gift for the holidays.. maybe that will be the olive branch, I just hope to have moment like you just wrote about.. old friends worth more than anyone can know.

    Well it’s just always how we’ve been and we’ve never been able to really be close enough to have a lot of issues. Does that make sense? It really wasn’t very weird at all, just fun and nice. I hope things go better with your friends.

    Hi. Thanks for dropping by at my site.

    I hardly feel like an adult, myself, seeing that I hang out with college kids 6 years younger than me. But yes, there’s nothing like a real, genuine friend at a time like this
