A visit from a friend..

Philippines
April 25, 2008 1:51am CST
Last night, while I was having my lecture, someone kept peeping at the door's small glass window. At first, I thought it was one of my students who always drop by my classroom before they go home. So I just nodded to signal that I saw him. I went on with my lecture and I noticed that the guy is still by the door. I went out to see who it actually was. I was surprised to see a high school classmate of mine! I was really so happy to see him. He's been the US for several years now and for three consecutive years (including this year) he always paid me a visit to let me know he's here in the Philippines. I had to leave my class for a while to talk to him. He is inviting me out together with our other high school classmates. So, we will be going out tomorrow night. Anyway, I am so happy that this friend never fails to pay me a visit everytime he's here in the Philippines. Of course, I am proud considering that everytime my high school classmates were in town, I am the one of the first few that they get to visit. Well, I just thought I would like to share this to all of you!

Hi DV, It is right DV I have also felt that way when our old friends come to meet us. They think of us when they come to the place we reside. That itself is a happy thought that you are wanted even after all these years. My classmates from College , we meet now and then whenever we get a chance, if we don't get a chance to meet we atleast talk regularly over the phone. When we meet it is very nice to talk about those days which will never return, don't you think so? That was very nice of your friend to come and call you at your place and asking you to enjoy a dinner out with other friends. Go and be with them and enjoy...

Yeah, it really feels so great! It's been 13 years since I have graduated from high school and I am so excited to see some of my high school classmates that I haven't seen in 13 years.

yes DV, it is nice to meet our ols class mates once in a while, just talking to them itself brings back the old memories of school life and how happy we were, so carefree like birds, don't you think so too? When I go by my school I just stand there for a minute staring at the grounds and things where we used to run and play with our friends... OH for those days !!!!

Hello dolce. It is nice of your friend who came to visit you once he came back from abroad. A get-together of high school classmates is fun, as it is time for us to know more about each other after graduation and it is considered to be some link of classmates in order to stay in touch with one another. Anyway I hope that you will have a lot of fun with your classmates at the party tomorrow.

I am sure that meeting up with your old friend was a blast! It's nice to see old friends. It's great to spend some time with them. Isn't it great to be one of the first few people they get to visit when they are in town? You must be one special friend to all of them.
