Childhood friends

I just saw a friend from grade school over the weekend. Unfortunately it was at a wake for her mother who passed away. I went because we had been such good friends and her mom was a lovely woman. I expected to say hello, pay my respects and leave. However, to my surprise my friend and I talked for a long time. It had been at least 10 years since the last time we saw each other and we were laughing because we still remembered each other’s street names and birthdays. If I had to pick her old house out of a line up it would be no problem. Isn’t it funny the things you retain, even as a child?
