I was reading the post of another blogger when it hit me. When was the last time I simply had fun? Not just an enjoyable time (October 29 at the concert), but a fun time? Where were the stupid jokes that only a close friend would understand and laugh at? Where were the over-the-top stories of what happened to us in the recent past (real or imaginary)?
The more I think about it, the more I realize that I have very few friends around here. Most of my friends are online (hello, friends reading my blog!). I have some fairly close acquaintances at work, but I rarely see them outside of work. I have family, but we talk about once a week (or far less) and see each other between one and several times a year.
I'm not having fun, and I'm all the poorer for it.
