It's a small world afterall

Phil managed to get his hands on two free tickets for an Alhouette versus Edmonton game last night. So after work, he picked me up and we head off to watch it. I don't mind football, don't know all the rules but find it entertaining enough. Of course we show up fashionably late into the 2nd quarter and the McGill stadium is packed. As we are walking up the stairs making our way through the crowd of screaming and drunk fans, who is sitting in our row about five seats away? My high school sweetheart and one of my high school friends. Of all things surprising and WEIRD! To have one of my first "loves" and my present LOVE sitting within 10 meters apart! So they met, shook hands, and Phil kept on looking over to analyze wether I have good tastes in guys on not. Funny thing is, he is not looking all that great. Barely changed since he was 16, he has totally lost hios charm. To think of how many girls were jealous of me for being his prom date. He was every teenage girls dream. Black hair, tanned skin, drivining around in a silver volvo, soccer player, did really well in school... Now all I see in him is a macho, overworked, Italian gino who smokes too much and doesn't exercise enough... wow how my tastes have changed!
