they play that song at the end of every ncssm block party on the very last night of the year before graduation. or, i guess i shouldn't say every, but the dj played it near the end of the dance each year that i was there. it was very appropriate. that song is going to be foever associated for me with dancing on a sidewalk in the middle of campus with people i loved and thought i'd keep up with forever.
i haven't, of course; i'm lousy at keeping in touch with people. but that's a regret for another time.
so i do some math in my head as i'm dancing around the kitchen... "heh. high school. i was 18 when i graduated... i'm going to be 25 in february... 25 minus 18... wow. 7? no, that can't be right. 7 years is forever. it's been the blink of an eye since i graduated."
but it hsn't, of course. it just seems that way.
