It has been a sad couple of days around here. The C-man’s best friend B has moved to Chicago. The C-man is sad because he played with B almost every day. He is wondering what he will do with himself every day. I am not sure what he will do either. I will have to try to keep him distracted, at least for a few days.
And I am sad too because B’s mom was one of my good friends. This is the thing that sucks about living in a college town. People are always leaving.
Of course, they are only moving to Chicago. My sister lives in the Chicagoland Metropolitan Area; my parents did too until last fall. I have always kind of considered Chicago my home base. If people ask where I am from I always say Chicago, and I still call it “home” even though I haven’t lived there in 15 years.
My point here is I am sure we will still see them, but it will not be the same as having them right next door.
