Rediscovering old mates

I've been reading a lot of the mainstream media blogs covering the World Cup. I'm finding them far more inciteful than the (supposed) analysis of the modelled country press conferences that are being given.

In pursuit of this I logged on to the Telegraph website the other day, one I rarely if never venture to and blow me down there's David Bond on the front page. Dave who I used to pick up on Figges Marsh every morning on the way to school. I knew he was doing well, but I hadn't realised how well, I'm really pleased for him he was an absolutely top bloke.

I lost touch with pretty much all my school mates after school, things were complicated due to a rather annoying relationship with one boy, that no one really liked and I couldn't get rid of. However, I thought sod it I'll give him a shout, emailed him through the blog and we're going out for a beer with a couple of old mates also from school. I'm really stoked, I really regrte not having kept in touch with many of them.

I lost touch with all my mates when I was 18, I changed football teams and started going out with a girl who lived 10 miles away from my home town and I moved in with her on Friday nights and came home Sunday nights. About five years go though I was asked to help out with an I.T problem at one of our clients and it turned out that I went to school with the wife of the husband/wife partnership and we've actually 'known' each other for nearly 40 years. We spent the first couple of meetings talking about old times much to the annoyance of her hubby.

I'm so pleased you've contacted your old school friend, Six, I hope you have a really good time when you go out with your friends.

Did he have a pointed head when he was at school....?

No, he was a bit fatter actually it looks like he's slimmed down.

He'd have made a fine copper with that pointy head. Still I suppose he's doing alright.
