I got the strangest email the other day.
From an acquaintance that I haven't seen in probably 4 years.
It was weird. Out of the blue. Totally unexpected.
My first instinct was to write a nice note back.
Then I started thinking about it - he didn't care how I was doing.
He heard that I may be in a position that could possibly be of assistance to him in the future and he thought he better get back in contact. (Seriously, I don't even know how he got my email address.)
I guess part of growing up is figuring out when someone is a friend because they care - as opposed to when they think you can offer them something.
Growing up stinks...
