I ran into Barbara at the pharmacy the other day. I hadn't seen her in awhile what with one thing and the other going on. We actually dated a little after I moved back to Little Rock. Despite that fact, she always is glad to see me and gives me a big hug. Yesterday was no different.
tmfw: So what's new with you?
MFB: Actually, I have gone back to school.
tmfw: No kidding? What are you studying?
MFB: I am in my last year of a 3 year program to get a degree in Speech Pathology.
tmfw: Wow! That's great! How's it going?
MFB: It's going really well. I just love it.
tmfw: Lord, I could never go back to school.
MFB: You'd be surprised. Before long that little brain of yours would kick right on in again just as good as new. If mine did yours would.
tmfw: Yeah, but you haven't fucked yours up through years of practicing law.
A serious look clouded her pretty face. She put her hand on my shoulder.
MFB: Excellent point. Forget everything I just said.
