Voice from the past

Tonight I got an IM from someone I haven’t chatted with in three years. It’s this girl I knew from back in Texarkana. Met her while I was working at Baymont Inn and Suites, when she was a young, spunky 17-year-old. Heh.

There was this one night she came to visit me while I was at work. Kept me entertained and awake during my night-shift drudgery. She hung out by the front desk while we chatted. Managed to keep some of the guests chatting in the nearby lobby entertained as well. Was an interesting night.

That was the last time I remember seeing her, even though we IM’d and chatted for a few more weeks before contact withered away. Fell silent for almost three years until she messaged me tonight. Oh how I do love the occasional shot of randomness in my still bathtub water of a life.

Found out she lives just 3 1/2 hours away from me. Living near Houston. She even suggested I take a road trip some time. Heh. Sounds interesting enough. Y’know?

Hey, it couldn’t hurt to do something with my time, right?
