I love the moment when you realize that you and a new friend you’re just getting to know perhaps already live inside of each others’ brains. Take last night, when I went to see a play with a new lady friend, Tricia, a fellow writeress. After intermission, we settled back into our seats. She spotted an apple in her bag.
New friend: Oh man, I was gonna eat this apple at intermission! Think it’s too late?
New Friend: I don’t want to say it.
Me: Say what?
New Friend (sort of ashamed):….I missed my apple-unity.
Me: FRIENDS FOR ALL OF LIFE?
New Friend: OKAY.
